Purely is committed to helping protect the environment and providing our customers with options for responsible disposal of Purely UV germicidal ultraviolet and Healthy and Pet CFL compact fluorescent bulbs. Recycling keeps mercury-containing products out of inappropriate waste disposal streams (especially through incineration), and is the preferred disposal method in most states for mercury-containing lamps and is consistent with solid waste disposal bans and partial bans in some states.

2. Local retailers – The list of retailers below has in-store recycling programs. Be sure you check directly with the store before you go; not all stores in regional or nationwide chains may be equipped to recycle.
3. Local Pick-Up / Recycling - Your area may require recycling. Some states and local jurisdictions have more stringent regulations than U.S. EPA does, and may require that you recycle CFLs and other mercury-containing light bulbs. California, Maine, New Hampshire (PDF), Minnesota, Vermont and Massachusetts, for example, all prohibit mercury-containing lamps from being discarded into landfills. Visit Earth911.com to contact your local waste collection agency, which can tell you if such requirement exists in your state or locality.
