      State Lamp Disposal Policies
      Disposing of your lamps
      Most states do not have special requirements for the disposal of
      regular household mercury-containing fluorescent lamps (including
      compact fluorescents), although a few states and localities ban
      homeowners from disposing of such lamps in normal household trash.

      Recycling your lamps
      Many towns and cities offer recycling opportunities at local
      recycling centers or transfer stations. There may also be household
      hazardous waste collection days when fluorescent lamps are collected
      along with paints, pesticides, used motor oil, etc. Contact your
      local waste disposal officials for details. State requirements and
      recycling opportunities vary.

      For more information, including a list of companies that recycle
      lamps, visit www.lamprecycle.org.
