When recycling light bubs remember these tips:
- Be sure to carefully package them to ensure that they do not break in transport. This could release dangerous toxins such as mercury.
- An easy way to prepare used lamps for recycling is to box them up in the packaging from your new lamps.
- Store your old lamps until you can locate an appropriate place to recycle them.
