Because CFLs contain a small amount of mercury, the EPA recommends that you take advantage of local recycling options, when available.
We’ve partnered with Veolia Environmental Services to offer free recycling of burned out CFLs at participating retail stores throughout Arizona.
Search for a participating recycler in your area (search functionality built into this tab).
Also, many cities in Maricopa County accept CFLs as part of their household hazardous waste collection. There’s no cost for drop off when you show proof of residency, typically with a water bill and picture ID.
Yavapai and Pinal County don’t offer services for household hazardous waste. Coconino County has a drop off facility in Flagstaff.
