Disposing of your CFLs
As a follow-up to my last post, CFLs....The Newest Environmental Hazard?, I wanted to let you know of a few options for safely disposing of your CFLs(Compact Florescent Light Bulbs).
Option 1: Contact your local trash service- they may have an option for you to dispose of your CFLs at little or no cost.
Option 2:Earth 911. This is a great website for all your recycling questions. At the top of the page- type in what you want to recycle and your zip code and the site will let you know everywhere near you that accepts recycling for your product.
Option 3:Probably the easiest option is Home Depot. Most Home Depot locations now accept used CFLs for recycling. Home Depot is the largest US retailer to launch a CFL recycling program.
