Light Bulb Recycling
Incandescent light bulbs and Halogen bulbs do not contain hazardous materials and can safely be thrown in the household trash or recycled at Batteries + Bulbs.
Fluorescent light bulbs come in various shapes from long 4-8 foot tubes to compact fluorescent bulbs (CFLs). Fluorescent tubes and CFL bulbs should never be thrown away in household trash. These tubes and bulbs contain mercury, which is toxic to humans and pets. Recycle 4' tubes and all CFL bulbs at the Little Rock Green Station or Batteries + Bulbs.
Light emitting diode (LED) bulbs include trace amounts of heavy metals such as lead and arsenic, so don't throw them away! Take LEDs to the Green Station or Batteries + Bulbs. You can also check your local hardware store to see if they recycle LED bulbs.
