What’s hazardous?


The most useful way to learn if your waste is considered hazardous is the Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure (TCLP) test. Fluorescent bulbs and their broken fragments fail the TCLP test and are considered hazardous waste. Other hazardous items that BulbCycle offers recycling kits for include (but are not limited to): ballasts, CFLs, U-Bend bulbs, HID bulbs, dry cell batteries, and alkaline batteries.

Organizations should manage their spent lamps and bulbs as hazardous waste in accordance with their federal, state, and local requirements.
