    HOMEOWNERS: Donít throw away your Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs RECYCLE THEM!

    Environmental Services will begin accepting Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs (CFLs) from your home at the Citizen Collection Stations as part of the Household Hazardous Waste Program. Due to the low levels of mercury in the bulbs, recycling the bulbs is the preferred method of disposal.

    Compact Fluorescent light bulbs are an effective, accessible change every American can make to reduce energy use at home and prevent greenhouse emissions that contribute to global climate change. CFLs use up to 75 percent less energy than incandescent light bulbs and last up to 10 times longer.

    Do you need a special container for the CFL? No, just place your used CFLs in a plastic bag or you can tape the bulbs together before taking them to your nearest Citizen Collection Station.

    For more information on recycling CFLs go to www.epa.gov/bulbrecycling
