Fluorescent Light Bulb Recycling
Fluorescent light bulbs, U-shape light bulbs, and High Intensity Discharge light bulbs (HID) have a certain amount of mercury that will dissipate into the surrounding environment when they break. Mercury is a very toxic element that tends to accumulate in body tissues. Once it reaches a certain level, it tends to adversely harm the nervous system particularly in children. Fluorescent light bulbs also contain aluminum, glass, and phosphorous, all of which can be recycled.

This recycling program is designed to serve households only. Our facilities can only accept a few fluorescent light bulbs from households.

Florida law prohibits businesses that generate fluorescent light bulbs from placing these bulbs in the trash. For more information, please contact our office at (813) 929-2755 ext. 6896.
 Fluorescent Bulb Recycling

Pasco County recycles 5,000 to 7,000 light bulbs annually. This translates to nearly 2,750 to 3,850 pounds of aluminum, glass, mercury and phosphorous, elements that can be re-used in the re-manufacturing of new products.
