NLR provides more than 25 years of universal waste recycling experience for customers coast to coast. Our recycling processes, commitment to customer service, and technology has made NLR a leader in the industry. The rules and regulations behind the universal wastes we recycle are complex. NLR’s highly trained and experienced staff are here to help businesses and consumers to understand safe handling procedures for universal waste and the guidelines for safe transport. NLR is a business-to-business company, but we want to be a knowledge resource for recycling and provide any information possible to help translate the universal waste rule so it makes sense for everyone.
