Subject: halogen light recyclers

I'm passing this info along...

So Cal Edison is sponsoring an event which will take in halogen torchieres
lamps, and sell replacement flourescent lamps. They are looking for a local
company which can recycle the halogen lights/lamps. If you know of any
companies that are capable of doing this please call Jane Wilson at

**** I apologize for any cross-postings. ****

I am organizing a session at the National Recycling Congress in Albuquerque,
New Mexico on September 15, 1998 entitled "Zero Waste Case Studies."

As a handout at that session, I would like to list companies who have achieved
greater than 90% recycling, or those who have adopted Zero Waste as a goal.
Following is a list of those companies in California that reported greater
than 90% diversion.

Please email me any suggestions you may have of companies like these,
including company name, location, contact person, phone, fax and/or email

Please forward copy of this request to any friends who can help.
