Home Depot’s motto states : ” You can do it, we can help”. In keeping with that philosophy, the company’s 1,973 locations are offering free recycling of compact florescent light bulbs. These lights are far more energy efficient than their standard counterparts, but do contain trace amounts of mercury, which causes disposal risks. Home Depot estimates that 75 percent of American households are within 10 miles of an HD location, creating a convenient solution for recycling CFLs nationwide. Thanks!
