CFL Bulb Recycling in Ontario

Date March 12, 2013 Author Jason Smith Categories Industry News

Compact Fluorescent Light (CFL) bulb recycling

Home Depot no longer accepts burned out CFLs for recycling. To keep mercury out of landfill and ensure that 100 per cent of the bulbs are properly recycled, Ontario residents may take burned CFLs to some RONA and Ikea retail locations (check local stores for specific information on take back initiatives). Ontario residents may also consult with their local municipality for drop-off locations or events.

Businesses looking to properly dispose of compact fluorescent lights and tubes are encouraged to visit
