Electronic waste (also known as e-waste or e-scrap) is a concern largely due to the toxicity of materials used in the manufacturing of many electrical/electronic and computer devices and components. Lead, Zinc, Chromium, Cadmium, Mercury and Copper are all common elements used in the manufacture of electronic equipment and all pose risks to the environment when not properly disposed of at the end of their useful life.

Packing, Shipping, and Storing Your E-Scrap
Palletization is the most efficient way to prepare large quantities of waste electrical and electronic equipment for shipment. Smaller quantities can be packaged in boxes, small crates, or as individual pieces. Lighting Resources can provide you with pallets, cubic yard boxes, and shrink wrap upon request and can provide on-site storage solutions.
Lighting Resources can provide packing materials and shipping labels for your shipments.
