Fluorescent light bulb disposal can be confusing, so here’s the breakdown: regulated fluorescent lamps contain mercury (a toxic pollutant) and need to be recycled to prevent releases into the environment through landfills. You’ve got two options for light bulb recycling: 1. Storing spent bulbs in sturdy, lightweight, fiber Fluorescent Lamp Recycling Drum until collection, or 2. Shipping your spent bulbs with our hassle-free, cradle-to-grave Lamp Recycling Program. Learn more about both recycling options below, and how they can help you comply with Universal Waste requirements.
