Recycle Palos - Fluorescent Bulbs and High Intensity Discharge Lamps

 
Compact Florescent Light Bulbs (CFL)
Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs) use a different, more advanced technology than incandescent light bulbs and come in a range of styles and sizes based on brand and purpose. CFLs have been manufactured for over 20 years, and have come a long way! They provide warm, inviting and lasting light without the flicker and hum of their infamous predecessors. If every American replaced just 5 regular bulbs with the CFL in their home, the effect on the environment would be like taking 8 million automobiles off the road a year.

CFL bulbs contain mercury so it is important to recycle them. The village's annual Hazardous Waste Collection site will accept Florescent bulbs.
