Recycling Programs

We offer services to help residential customers and businesses recycle and dispose of hazardous and potentially hazardous materials in a safe, environmentally responsible way. Products like fluorescent lamps, standard ballasts, batteries and computer equipment can contain toxins that can be harmful to the environment. By recycling these products, hazardous waste such as mercury, lead and cadmium is captured and disposed of in a proper manner. The glass, metal and plastic can be recycled and used to make new products.  

 Fall Recycling Event

When:  Tuesday, September 27, 2022 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (please note the time change)

Where: NHU Garage, 1819 Park Avenue in New Holstein

What: Electronics, light bulbs (including incandescent, fluorescent, HID and LED lamps), ballasts, batteries, televisions, dehumidifiers, window air conditioners, dorm size refrigerators.

Why: NHU tries to be a steward of the environment.  By recycling, we eliminate taking unnecessary waste to the landfill and re-use the materials that can be salvaged.  Every product that is collected is recycled by our vendors.  This prevents toxic heavy metals and other hazardous waste from finding their way into our local water resources.

Cost: You pay what our vendors charge NHU.  We do not mark up the costs or add any fees. Recycling Fees will be posted when we receive them.

 

     PLEASE SEPARATE YOUR LIGHTS BULBS AND BATTERIES BY TYPE.

Lamp/Ballast Recycling  

We provide competitive, efficient and safe recycling and/or disposal of hazardous and potentially hazardous waste lamps, light bulbs, capacitors, computers and other PCB ballast components in an EPA approved facility. 

NHU is pleased to offer this recycling service to our customers several times each year. The recycling dates are communicated through our web site, billing inserts and bill messages. Customers are responsible for bringing the products to New Holstein's collection site. Fees are collected at the time the recycled products are delivered to the collection site. We request that fluorescent lamps be boxed in their original containers, taped shut and the number of lamps to be recycled written on the box. The materials are collected by the vendor and properly recycled. 

If you have any questions about the program, please contact our office.
