Recycle PV Solar is here to help make solar recycling simple. We will walk you through the process, help you understand where PV panels are going, what will happen to collected PV panels, how to be compliant with local regulations, and most importantly – ensure you understand the cost of recycling PV panels.

Why Recycle PV?
For solar to be a truly sustainable and clean energy source, the full lifecycle of solar components must be addressed by manufacturers, distributors, contractors, and O&M providers.
In areas of the US, like California, PV modules must be handled as hazardous waste at end of life. Improper disposal can lead to groundwater issues.

pv magazine: Solar panel recycling in the US — a looming issue that could harm industry growth and reputation
The solar industry cannot claim to be a clean energy source if it leaves a trail of hazardous waste. But, absent a cogent PV recycling policy, the U.S. risks sending millions of solar modules and tons of toxics to landfill in the coming years. A new initiative by Recycle PV Solar seeks to address this problem.
