Waste Lamp Recycling Project

The St. Regis Mohawk Tribe’s (SRMT) Solid Waste Management Program (SWMP) is participating with the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) Lamp Recycling Outreach Project. The SRMT has created a competitively priced demonstration recycling project that will usher in an alternative to current lamp disposal methods.

Along with this project, the SWMP is creating a bank of informational and promotional materials – a brochure, flyer, DVD, and training manual. The purpose of the training manual is twofold:

  1. It will provide general information about waste lamps and why they are harmful to the environment if not properly disposed and
  2. It will provide information to other Indian Nations that will allow them to set up a collection and recycling program in their communities.

The brochure, flyer, and DVD expound upon the first purpose of the training manual, but they are geared mainly toward the immediate community. Their purpose is to provide information about waste lamps, why they are harmful to the environment if not properly disposed, and where to take waste lamps for recycling (to the SRMT Transfer Station).

What's done ...

the brochure Flyer and DVD

  • The brochure has been finalized, approved by EPA, and distributed to local businesses and residents.
  • The short informational/promotional flyer about waste lamps has been finalized and distributed throughout the community.
  • The DVD has been finalized and approved by EPA. It will be used to inform community members about the waste lamp recycling project.
  • The training manual has been finalized and approved by EPA. It will be used to promote waste lamp recycling programs and inform this and other Indian Nations.
  • Our first transfer of about 750 waste lamps
    • Local businesses brought in their waste lamps on Seskeha/August 3rd.
    • A recycling facility picked up our shipment of waste lamps on Seskeha/August 9th.
