Street Light Recycling

Green-Port is committed to the recycling of all styles of obsolete street-lights.Street Light  - Recycling[1]

The current street light technology in Canada makes use of mainly high pressure sodium (HPS) lamps. This specific type of lighting consumes more electrical energy when compared to light emitting diode (LED) lamps.

As the price of LED lighting continues to drop, municipalities are now considering the replacement of their cobra head street lights. We expect that electrical energy subsidies will be reduced in the future for all street lighting in towns, cities and on highways. We believe this will accelerate the change from HPS to the LED street lights.

Green-Port Environmental is here to assist you in the collection, transportation and recycling of cobra head street lights. We offerObsolete Street lights - gaylord boxes[1] proper disposal options of the HPS lamps which contain mercury and must be properly disposed of, as opposed to land-filling.

Green-Port offers 100% recycling of the glass lens, the wire, the ferrous and non-ferrous metals and the capacitor, that are in a typical Canadian street lights.
