Recycle Fluorescent Bulbs

Did you know fluorescent bulbs - both the long tubes, and compacts - contain mercury and should always be recycled? Bring them to Winer Bros. Hardware on Lafayette St. anytime, or to the DPS building, 5 Jefferson Ave., the last Saturday of the month from 8:00-12:00. Compact fluorescents (but not tubes) can also be recycled at Home Depot.

PLease tell your friends! I'm sure many people are tossing these mercury fluorescent bulbs in the trash. Imagine the mercury in our water and ground. Please educate at least one other person about these bulbs until the day they are replaced with affordable LED lighting.

One way for the City to encourage people to recycle these hazardous items, and other similar things, might be to allow drop off any time - not just a four hour window once a month.
