Now Accepting Residential Light Bulbs For Recycling
YVEA has partnered with Brite Ideas in Glenwood Springs, CO to accept residential light bulbs at its YVEA Office, 2211 Elk River Road, during regular business hours, from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.
This new free program makes it easy to recycle residential light bulbs, which is important because compact fluorescent (CFL) light bulbs and fluorescent tube lights and tube lights often contain small amounts of mercury, making them hazardous waste and illegal to dump in landfills. Residents can drop off their CFL lightbulbs at special containers located in the YVEA office reception area. No light tubes of any size are accepted.
This program is for residential light bulbs only. Contractors, businesses and other commercial or large scale operation in need of bulb recycling can contact Cody Skurupey, firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 970-290-3379 to schedule a pick-up.
