Florescent Bulb Recycling

Pasco County incinerates household trash. LED, incandescent and halogen bulbs can be placed directly into your household trash. These types of lamps contain no hazardous materials, and any metals are recovered from the incineration process.

Mercury is hazardous, and removing it from the solid waste stream is critical. Never put fluorescent tubes or CFLs in your household trash or curbside recycling. These lamps will be designated with the Hg symbol for mercury. Pasco County recycles fluorescent lamps. Bring mercury containing lamps to a recycling center to be disposed of safely. In 2017, Pasco County recycled 11,482 pounds of mercury containing lamps. For more information, call Pasco County Public Infrastructure, Environmental Compliance at 813-929-2755, ext. 2046.

Some retailers, such as Batteries + Bulbs, Home Depot, and Lowe’s, may offer their residential customers fluorescent bulb recycling. Check your local store.
