Georgia Power has partnered with The Home Depot to offer recycling for compact fluorescent light bulbs at the retailer’s stores in Georgia. Georgia Power sponsors in-store bins at all 88 The Home Depot locations in the state, which creates the state’s most widespread recycling program for CFLs.
For more information about the CFL recycling program, visit www.homedepot.com/ecooptions.

If a CFL should break in your home, EPA provides cleanup guidelines that can be performed by the general public.
More than 95 percent of an LED bulb is recyclable; simply call your local waste management company to learn its policies for collecting and recycling.
Since LED bulbs do not contain mercury and do not require special recycling, non-working LED bulbs can be placed in the garbage.
