CFL Recycling Kits for Your Home

By: Danny Lipford

Over the past few years the use of compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFL) has increased dramatically in households. Since CFLs contain a small amount of mercury, it’s important to dispose of old bulbs properly.

To make this process easier, Waste Management offers CLF recycling kits for your home. The kit consists of a foil bag to safely hold burned out bulbs, and a prepaid postage box to ship them directly to Waste Management for proper disposal.

Recycling kits are also available for fluorescent tubes, batteries, and electronic devices. Watch this video to find out more.
