Fluorescent Light Bulb Recycling Program


This program accepts 4-foot, 6-foot and 8-foot fluorescent lamps as well as u-shaped, circular and compact fluorescents.

Broken fluorescent lamps are not accepted.  Click here to view the Environmental Protection Agency's guidelines for proper and safe steps to take in order to cleanup and dispose of broken fluorescent bulbs.

Residents can drop off a maximum of five bulbs or lamps at the County's Recycling Centers. There is no cost to drop off the bulbs after which they will be recycled.

The drop off at the County's Recycling Centers is for residents only. Fluorescent fixtures are also accepted during the County's Household Hazardous Waste Collection Program.
