Bulb and Bottle Recycling

A service we've been offering to our customers over the past few years and one we don't think is taken advantage of enough is our bulb and bottle recycling program. The CFL and HID bulbs we use in this industry contain mercury, which is really harmful if it leaches into our ground water, or if it's burned by waste incineration and released into the environment. Recycling lamps allows the mercury to be captured and reused. Once a month we bring old bulbs to the local hazardous waste recycling facility. Most CFL bulbs are now able to be recycled at big-box stores like Lowes and Home Depot (but we also accept them). For more information on bulb recycling, or to find a recycling center near you, check out these links:

- - provides answers to most questions regarding lamp recycling
- - good information on recycling in general, plus you can find out where to recycle almost anything
Besides bulbs, we also offer bottle recycling. Bring us your empty, clean nutrient bottles and we will recycle them for you.
