New website aims to consolidate all solar recycling options

Solar industry volunteers have launched an informational website to display the different locations that accept recycled solar components.

SolarRecycle.org aims to aggregate valuable information on where to donate or sell used equipment, how to recycle solar equipment and state and federal policy related to solar recycling and waste classification. The site features an interactive map, highlighting recycling service providers known in each state. While this is a fledgling sector of the industry, the number of providers is growing, and SolarRecycle.org aims to consolidate this information to make it as easy as possible for all contractors to handle materials responsibly.

“How many solar companies have piles of used and broken equipment in their warehouse? This website can help connect you with options to sell, donate, or recycle those items and free up your space — and your conscience,” Kate Collardson, a volunteer with SolarRecycle.org, commented. “It is our responsibility to keep waste out of the landfills and ensure that solar equipment is used to the fullest extent possible. Our website offers a quick and easy way for solar contractors to find the information they need to implement responsible solutions.”
