Compact Fluorescent Light bulbs (CFL)

CFL's contain a small amount of mercury, about 5 milligrams, roughly the size of the tip of a ball-point pen, therefore the US EPA recommends taking it to a local household hazardous waste collection. In Ingham County, these collections take place each Thursday, from 2-6pm at the Ingham County Health Dept. at the corner of Cedar and Jolly, from May-September. Please call 887-4312 for more information.

The Board of Water and Light also offers a free drop off for CFL's at their customer service center, located at 1232 Haco Drive, 8am-5pm, M-F.

Home Depot stores will also accept CFL's.

Please double bag the bulbs before dropping them off.

You can find locations that accept RV trailer waste at the following websites:

Illegal Dumping (Illicit Discharges)

Illegal dumping, also called and an illicit discharge, is releasing pollutants like motor oil, sewage, fertilizer, pet waste and latex paint into the river or the storm sewer.

Illicit discharges are pollutants released from stormwater and sewer pipes to the river or stormwater collection system.

If you see illegal dumping please report it. See Contact Us for details. See Stormwater Articles for more information on how to prevent illicit discharges.
