ATTSignageOver the last few years, AT&T Inc. re-branding efforts across the country included a redesign of the company logo that necessitated the replacement of 7,000 channel letter signs on more than 6,500 AT&T office buildings and retail locations.

With a switch to an LED lighting system (GE Lumination’s Tetra), AT&T is expected to save more than 5.8 million kWh and eliminate 3,500 metric tons of carbon dioxide annually.

In total, approximately 2.6 million LEDs replaced both the high-voltage, high-maintenance neon that is often used in small-building signs and less-efficient linear fluorescent lighting, which performs less favorably than LEDs in cold climates.

LED fixture manufacturer Renaissance Lighting has established a recycling program designed to keep Renaissance Lighting products out of the nation’s landfills.

The company’s fixtures are nearly 100% recyclable, according to the company. From the reflector to the mounting frame to the LED light engine, most of the product can be recycled by returning it to Renaissance for binning and subsequent shipping to Potomac Metals, Inc., a scrap metal recycling company in Sterling, VA.

Luminaires once destined for disposal in landfills will return instead to Renaissance lighting for a binning process and subsequently shipped to Potomac Metals Inc., a privately held independent scrap metal recycling company based in Sterling, VA.
