CFL Recycling

Safe Disposal

The Household Hazardous Waste Facility (located at 7151 Roza Hill Drive in Yakima) will take fluorescent bulbs in tubes or as compact fluorescent bulbs (CFL). Free CFL bulb recycling is also available at all Home Depot and Lowe's stores nationwide.   

LightRecycle Washington

The LightRecycle Washington program began on January 1, 2015 for the collection and recycling of mercury-containing lights sold at retail.

A network of collection sites has been established throughout Washington State that includes retailers, municipal waste facilities, collection events, and residential curbside collection. Washington State residents and businesses can recycle up to 10 mercury-containing lights per day for free, by dropping them off at authorized Collection Sites throughout the State. Go to for specific sites in our county who are a part of that program.
