Where To Recycle CFL & LED Bulbs in New Hampshire

How BulbCycle’s Process Works


nevadaRecycling of lamp (bulb) components in New Hampshire is the recommended method of disposal by the Environmental Protection Agency and helps to minimize facility liability. Packaging of bulbs properly coupled with recycling of the bulbs will greatly reduce the mercury dilemma and create a much safer environment.

According to the New Hampshire EPA "All fluorescent lamps (including CFLs) and high intensity discharge lamps (the term commonly used for several types of lamps, including metal halide, high pressure sodium, and mercury vapor lamps) contain a small amount of mercury and, by law, must be recycled or disposed of as hazardous waste. They cannot go in the trash or dumpster. Mercury is a heavy metal and when released into the environment can contaminate the air, soil, surface water and groundwater. Mercury can also accumulate in humans and animals and cause adverse health effects. Fluorescent lamps may be managed as “universal waste,” which makes their management and recycling less expensive and easier. In all cases, the business generating fluorescent lamps must track the management and movement of fluorescent lamps. T

At a glance:

  • Because of mercury concerns, recycling fluorescent bulbs is highly recommended by the New Hampshire EPA and is required for many facilities throughout the state
  • Crushing fluorescent bulbs is allowed in New Hampshire
  • Prepaid recycling by mail is allowed in New Hampshire
