Compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) contain mercury. At the end of their life they should be recycled, rather than disposed of with other trash. See if your community accepts CFLs as part of municipal hazardous waste collections, or if local retailers have drop-off bins for spent CFLs. If not, use this Mixed CFL recycling kit from Veolia ES, an environmental services company that will process the fluorescent lamps properly.
This pail is large enough to accommodate encapsulated CFLs, reflectors, and large spirals. upon receipt insert the plastic liner into the 5 gallon pail. Fill the pail with expired compact fluorescent light bulbs to be recycled. When the box is full complete the prepaid Federal Express return shipping label and ship the bulbs to Veolia ES for recycling.
The price includes the pail, plastic liner, liner tie, instructions, and return shipping and processing costs.
