The kits include all packaging materials, paperwork, and a prepaid return shipping label. After the signs are properly packaged, the kits are shipped directly to a Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) approved recycling facility. We assist with every step of the process and even provide a letter for you to send to the NRC to notify them of the transaction. According to the NRC there are 2,000,000 of these exits signs in use, and all of these will eventually need to be recycled."
