Recycle Florescent Light Bulbs
April 4th, 2013
At GLASS RECYCLED we receive calls daily about where and how to recycle glass. Many times people are unsure where to take empty bottles, occasionally jars or even florescent light bulbs. We do not take in glass at our facility due to numerous variables, but we strongly encourage you to visit a local recycler prior to throwing away any glass.
Recently we took part of a children’s educational television show, Curiosity Quest. Partnering up with Lighting Resources out of Fort Worth, TX made it possible to showcase the life of a florescent light bulb. From a home or office building to the recycler- the light bulbs go through several recycled processes. Sorting parts to crushing the bulb a florescent light bulb is recycled within minutes. Once the glass is gathered it then is brought to our warehouse where we are able to mix the local recycled glass into our existing resin. With the wide array of colors we then are able to produce recycled florescent light bulb countertops.
