How BulbCycle’s Program Works

1. Select your kit

Select and purchase the containers for the items you need to dispose of. Our recycling program offers kits for fluorescent lamps/bulbs, LED bulbs, CFLs, ballasts, batteries, electronics, mercury devices and more!

2. Receive and fill with waste

Simply pack the kit at your own pace with your waste. Each kit includes a container, all shipping fees, recycling costs and a certificate of recycling. You will receive your container(s) in 6-11 business days. Don’t worry, you have a full year to return them to us.

3. Schedule pickup via FedEx

All of our products ship with a pre-paid FedEx return shipping label. Once your container is full and sealed, call the FedEx phone number that comes on each box to schedule a pre-paid pickup, or drop it off at a FedEx location. The filled container will be delivered for recycling to one of BulbCycle’s permitted facilities located within the United States.

4. Request Certificate of Recycling

After your waste has been received and processed, you can request your certificate by logging into the website provided on your recycling kit. Please allow three weeks for processing.

What is a T12, T8, or T5 lamp?

T12, T8 and T5 lamps are all based on the tube’s diameter. Applicable to fluorescent and LED lamps, the 12, 8 and 5 refers to the sizing. The measurements are done in increments of an eighth of an inch, so a T12 lamp is twelve-eighths of an inch (hence the “12”), or 1.5 inches. A T8 lamp is 8-eighths of an inch, or one inch, and a T5 is five eighths of an inch, or .625 inch.

You can mix and match all diameters of your 8 foot fluorescent lamps in our 8 foot recycling kit!
