Dispose of Solar Panels Properly

Posted by Laurie Krebs in Solar Panels, January 18th, 2012 |
Solar PanelsIf getting ready to dispose of a solar panel, find a way to recycle it rather than dispose of it. There are multiple online companies that would be happy to take your old solar panels off your hands. Check with your recycling provider to see if they take them. Solar panels may contain harmful or noxious chemicals, dispose of them properly.

Most manufacturers of solar panels admit that the panels contain harmful elements and would even support a law requiring manufacturers to recycle used panels returned from customers.
