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.
