Small Businesses: Save Money & Recycle Your Fluorescent Lights Free of Charge!!!  If you own a small business, the San Diego County Department of Environmental Health wants to save you money by helping you recycle your fluorescent lights free of charge! To qualify for this opportunity, businesses must be located in San Diego County.

California State law requires everyone must recycle florescent lights, which can cost small businesses hundreds of dollars a year. Thanks to an Energy Efficiency & Conservation Block Grant from The US Department of Energy, The San Diego County of Environmental Health is currently able to offer a limited time opportunity to properly recycle lamps at no cost.

To participate, simply fax or mail your request form (available at: under “universal waste”). Once your request is processed, you will receive a pre-postage paid kits that can be filled and shipped directly to a recycler for proper management.

Businesses can acquire a maximum of four (4) kits that will accommodate up to 200 bulbs (depending on size and type) while supplies last. This program is anticipated to run through June 2012.

Remember: Disposal of Fluorescent lamps (tubes and bulbs) to the trash is prohibited in California

Fluorescent lamps must be managed as Universal Waste and properly recycled according to Section 66273.33 of Title 22, California Code of Regulations. Fluorescent lamps contain small amounts of toxic metal mercury so do your part and recycle!
