Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs (CFL's)


Many hardware supply stores (Lowe's, Home Depot, Menards, ACE Hardware) and other retailers offer in-store recycling. Make sure you check directly with the store before you go; not all stores in regional or nationwide chains may be equipped to recycle.


Home Depot – customers can bring in any expired, unbroken CFL bulbs, place them in a plastic bag and deposit them both into a collection unit.


Menards – Menards also recycles CFL bulbs.


Lowe's also made it easier for customers to make a difference by installing recycling centers in more than 1,700 stores throughout the United States. The permanent recycling centers, located at the store entrance, offer a free, convenient and easy way for customers to recycle rechargeable batteries, cell phones, compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) and plastic shopping bags.
