Don’t Toss CFL bulbs — compact fluorescent lightbulbs
Don’t Toss CFL Bulbs — If you’ve made the switch from incandescent light bulbs to the more energy-efficient compact fluorescent lightbulbs (CFLs), remember not to trash them when they burn out. Instead, recycle. Each CFL contains about five milligrams (about the size of the top on a ballpoint pen) of mercury, a neurotoxin that poses health and environmental concerns. While no mercury is released when bulbs are intact, mercury can leak out of incinerated or broken bulbs, contaminating water sources, air and soil. In some states, such as Maine and California, putting CFLs in the trash is illegal. Instead, bring your spent, unbroken CFLs to most Home Depot and Ikea retail stores to be recycled for free, even those you didn’t buy from them. Ace Hardware also collects CFLs at select locations. Your state’s household hazardous waste collection program also may recycle lightbulbs. For locations, visit the Environmental Protection Agency’s lightbulb recycling site at epa.gov/bulbrecycling. The service is usually free, though some may charge a small fee. You also can mail them back but it isn’t cheap. Lighting company Osram Sylvania sells prepaid, prelabeled recycling kits that hold up to 12 small (or 6 to 8 medium) CFLs for $15. Consumers can give the package to any letter carrier or U.S. Postal Service facility for return delivery. 8/08
