Sturgeon Bay Utilities can save you a trip to Green Bay to recycle compact fluorescent light bulbs. As the bulbs near the end of their useful lives and are being replaced by LED bulbs, proper disposal becomes challenging. CFL's cannot be placed in trash cans or recycle bins. Markie Bscherer, Energy Services Representative for Sturgeon Bay Utilities, says there is drop off point if you don't mind driving to Green Bay. Then there's SBU's bi-annual recycling events where CFL bulbs can be safely dropped off.
Bscherer recommends homeowners create a separate bin where burned out CFL bulbs can be stored until the next recycling event in May.
