EYE Lighting Recycling Facts
EYE Lighting is making a concerted effort to reduce, reuse and recycle as much material as possible in the production process and for daily business. EYE Lighting's recycling project is not only to cut down on waste headed to landfills but to cut costs associated with hauling trash as well.
In 2016, EYE Lighting:
Reduced annual costs by over $30,000 and received over $5,400 in refunds
Prevented 825 cubic yards of landfill space from being used
Equivalent to nearly 10,900 filled standard kitchen bags!
Saved 103 barrels of oil from being consumed by new production
One barrel of oil can produce about 19 gallons of gasoline, 10 gallons of diesel, 4 gallons of jet fuel, and 9 gallons of other oil products!

That’s enough volume to fill almost eight - 24ft round swimming pools!
