Once you experience the well-being and aesthetic benefits of the Brilli WellBright Spectrum™, you’ll want to switch all of your home lighting. Here’s how to safely recycle or throw out old bulbs and fixtures:
Be sure to check with your local recycling centers for specific requirements.
These bulbs typically do not contain toxic chemicals, so you can throw them away in your regular trash or recycle them at your local hardware store. As with any glass object, be careful of glass shards. It’s always wise to surround bulbs in plastic or other packing materials.
Unlike incandescent bulbs, each CFL contains about four milligrams of mercury, which is harmless when the bulb is intact but potentially toxic if the bulb breaks in a landfill and enters the water stream. California, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Hampshire, Vermont and Washington have more stringent regulations. Be sure to contact your local waste collection agency for specific requirements. Put the CFL in a plastic zipper bag to prevent any mercury from leaking if it breaks during transportation. Don’t pack multiple CFLs in the same bag, as this will increase the chance of them breaking. You can take your CFLs to antifreeze, batteries, oil, paint (ABOP) facility or household hazardous waste event.
