Home Depot will Recycle Your CFL’s

Last week Home Depot announced it would accept all CFLs (compact flourescent lightbulbs) for recycling. This is great news considering the hazardous properties of disposed CFLs which contain trace amounts of mercury. The use of CFLs continue to rise and with most people in America living near a Home Depot there is no excuse for dumping irresponsibly.
Kudos to Home Depot.

If you don’t live near a Home Depot or would rather dispose of your CFLs yourself then make sure to follow these instructions of how to dispose of CFLs properly.
