TRITIUM EXIT SIGN DISPOSAL
Radioactive H-3 Exit Sign Recycling Service
Self-luminous radioactive Tritium H3 exit sign disposal brokerage services are 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, yet pathways to exits must still be marked. These self-powered exit signs often contain Curie amounts of Tritium (H-3) contained in small glass tubes inside the exit sign housing which illuminate the lettering on the template of the exit sign typically in a greenish colored glow and are attached to walls with a simple metal bracket or screws.
If you find yourself asking, “What do I do with a radioactive exit sign?” or “How do I dispose of a radioactive exit sign?” remember this: Tritium, while not overly harmful, must be handled properly to avoid Tritium contamination. It is of utmost importance that radioactive exit signs be handled with care to avoid breakage of the glass tubes located on the inside the exit sign housing containing the Tritium. These signs are to NEVER be thrown away in the regular trash and if caught disposing of H-3 exit signs in with the regular garbage the generator may face huge fines from the regulatory agencies, public exposure in the news, plus face site clean-up and remediation costs.
