Did You Know...
Did you know that all fluorescent light bulbs contain harmful mercury which complicates how they can disposed of? Because mercury is poisonous, even small amounts are a concern for landfills and waste incinerators where the mercury from lamps may be released and contribute to air and water pollution. Fortunately, Region 7 residents have the opportunity to dispose of fluorescent bulbs safely. Our region has 2 "bulb eater" machines that crush the bulbs and effectively trap and filter the mercury and other dangerous chemicals.
If you are looking to dispose of any fluorescent bulbs, please bring them to one of the following locations:
Yarmouth Solid Waste Park
1934 Hardscratch Road
Clare Transfer Station
919 Bonnie Road, Meteghan
