Fluorescent light tubes contain mercury gas making responsible disposal difficult. While there are state programs to help you dispose of them, we can help make it easier.
Ridwell will pick them up and ensure that the mercury gets handled safely and the metal and plastic are recycled. That’s one less chore for you!
When you give your fluorescent light tubes to Ridwell, we do the heavy lifting. These long, cumbersome CFLs contain mercury gas, making them hard to transport safely. We’ll make sure they get to our partner and get properly recycled.
When you opt-in to your pickup, add fluorescent light tubes. You can find it under the add-ons section.
Select the number of tubes you have for pickup.
Please make sure tubes are visible for our driver next to your bin.
We’ll let you know once we’ve picked up your lights and send you a receipt via text message.
While what we take in this category varies by city, here is what is generally included.
Fluorescent straight tubes
Fluorescent U-shaped tubes
Fluorescent light circles
