Properly dispose of your CFLs




Did you know that even the new compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs we use in our homes today have mercury in them? If mercury is released, even in small amounts, it can damage the brain and central nervous system.

Use caution when handling CFLs and if you break a bulb in your home consult the EPA’s website for recommendations for when a CFL or other mercury-containing bulb breaks.

Properly dispose of your CFLs and other household hazardous waste at the Mesa County Hazardous Waste Collection Facility, 3071 Hwy. 50. For more information visit http://www.mesacounty.us/swm/hazmat/
