Why Should I Recycle Smoke Detectors?

As smoke detectors age, they become less reliable, and may even start emitting false alarms. To keep your family or staff safe from a possible fire, you want to ensure that your smoke detectors are always up to date and functioning properly. Be sure to replace your detectors as they approach end-of-life by using one of our smoke detector recycling kits.

It's important to recycle smoke detectors because they contain very small amounts of radioactive material. Proper disposal of old smoke detectors ensures that radioactive material doesn't end up in landfills and contaminate the surrounding environment.
