Fluorescent Bulb Collection Events


We have no bulb collections currently scheduled due to COVID-19. Businesses with disposal needs should contact our office at 507-457-6462 to set up alternate arrangements.

Fluorescent Bulb Collections are typically held in April and September to assist businesses in proper disposal. Events are held in the cities of St. Charles, Lewiston, and Winona. Residents with quantities less than 10, may bring their bulbs to the Household Hazardous Waste Facility (HHW) anytime during regular business hours. Disposal of 10 bulbs per year is free.


Businesses needing disposal outside these event collections must call 507-457-6462 for special arrangements. Businesses may not bring bulbs to the HHW Facility without prior approval.
