Used lamp recycling program

One hundred per cent of the incandescent light bulbs used on campus have been phased out to light-emitting diode (LED) light fixtures. LED is a more efficient lighting option, a reduction of approximately 85 kilowatts of demand.

All used lamps are properly recycled by a certified third-party processing and recycling company. This process allowed the university to divert approximately 190 kg of glass, metals, phospher, mercury, porcelain and plastic from landfill, while improving campus efficiency!
