Radioactive H-3 Exit Sign Recycling Service


Self-luminous radioactive Tritium H3 exit sign disposal service is offered by ADCO Services to generators of radioactive exit sign waste in The United States. Radioactive exit signs are sometimes used in facilities such as: skyscrapers / high rises, hospitals, universities, tunnels, airplanes, and office buildings where electrical lines are difficult to run. These self-powered exit signs often contain Curie amounts of Tritium (H-3) contained in glass tubes which illuminate the lettering on the exit sign typically in a greenish colored glow.
