Fluorescent light bulb disposal safety
Fluorescent lights are used in businesses, in homes, in offices, in restrooms; the list goes on and on. Unfortunately, they do not last forever, and eventually they will need to be disposed of. It is important to properly dispose of these light bulbs, rather than just dumping them in the dumpster or another roll-off container. Due to the high-intensity-discharge (HID) containing mercury-vapor, metal-halide, and high-pressure sodium, it is important to properly dispose of fluorescent lights and ensure that they are properly managed.
