Safe Disposal Sites for Fluorescent tubes and bulbs for All Waukesha County Residents:

Fluorescent tubes and bulbs contain mercury, which is a hazardous material, and must be disposed properly. Do not place fluorescent bulbs or tubes in your trash or recycling bins. Check with retail stores e.g. Home Depot, True Value (some), Sears, Target, Lowes and Batteries Plus Bulbs to see if they accept residential compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs). Call to confirm, fees may apply.
The County Household Hazardous Waste drop-off sites do accept residential fluorescent bulbs/ballasts and tubes, but should be used as a last resort.
