Recycling - Compact Fluorescent Lights

Residents Can Recycle Compact Fluorescent Bulbs at Hastings City Hall

Hastings residents who save electricity by using compact fluorescent bulbs can also save fuel by recycling the bulbs locally. The City has established a collection point at Hastings City Hall, 101 4th St East.

Compact fluorescent lights (CFLs) use less wattage to provide the same amount of light as conventional bulbs. The fluorescents also typically last longer, but contain small amounts of mercury. It is illegal to dispose of them in the garbage.

Users can bring CFLs to the lobby of City Hall during normal business hours, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays. City Hall staff will place CFLs in the recycling bin for you. The collected bulbs will be delivered to Dakota County Environmental Management, which will recycle them at no additional cost.

The City will only accept compact fluorescent bulbs that fit in the screw-in sockets used by traditional incandescent bulbs. Broken bulbs must be in a sealed plastic bag or container.

The City cannot accept larger fluorescent bulbs. Those bulbs should be taken to the The Recycling Zone in Eagan for recycling. Contact the facility at 651-905-4520 for details.
