It’s a Bright Idea to Recycle Your Fluorescent Lights!

Due to small amounts of mercury, it is against the law to place fluorescents in your household trash or recycling bin. View our informational brochure on proper CFL and fluorescent tube cleanup and disposal (English Spanish). 

Residents can recycle fluorescent lights at the following locations FREE of charge:

GreenWaste* 1805 Airport Blvd., Red Bluff

Tehama County/Red Bluff Landfill* 19995 Plymire Rd., Red Bluff

Los Molinos Hardware* 7930 Highway 99E, Los Molinos

McCoy Hardware and Farm Supply* 2060 South Ave., Corning

Home Depot 2650 Main Street, Red Bluff

* Accepts up to 20 fluorescent tubes (4’ or 8’ long) per resident.

Small fees apply to businesses and governmental agencies.

Tehama County businesses and governmental agencies must make an appointment by calling (530) 528-1103.

CFLs do not belong in battery bags, or your household trash or recycling carts. Please do not expose solid waste employees to mercury.
