3RCertified is a points-based certification program for buildings in the Industrial, Commercial and Institutional (IC&I) sectors that reviews how organizations manage solid waste reduction and diversion operations. Participating organizations achieve certification levels based on established criteria and third-party evaluation of waste management and reduction practices.

Take Back the Light is Canada’s leading light recycling program for businesses and institutions, and provides a simple low-cost opportunity to have fluorescent lamps and light fixtures to be recycled responsibly.

The program works with both buyers and sellers of fluorescent lamps of any kind to recover and properly recycle lights to the highest environmental standards. Ninety-eight per cent of each light collected is diverted from disposal with component parts reused wherever possible.
