How To Dispose of Your Old CFL Bulbs

Fluorescent lighting is a great option for many businesses due its energy efficiency and bulb lifespan when compared to regular incandescent lighting. But like all lights fluorescent bulbs do eventually stop producing light, and regardless of whether this is due to breakage or to old age the first thing many do is thrown them away. However, this can be dangerous and environmentally irresponsible as fluorescent bulbs contain small amounts of mercury in them and depending on the size and shape of the bulb it can also be tricky to just throw them away.

So how should you dispose of them? Here are a couple of suggestions:

  1. Often your regular garbage collection service will have the ability to recycle your old bulbs and if they do, find out what you need to do to take advantage of this.
  2. If your garbage retailer can’t help you then it may be worth getting in touch with your local or provincial government to see whether they have any bulb collection services or locations where you can drop your old lights off.
  3. The final and most advisable solution is to get an expert to deal with the problem for you.
