Properly Disposing Of Used Lighting
Knowing how to handle the disposal of lighting implements is not only prudent, it’s the law.
Used lamps may be stored in drums, boxes or the cartons they originally came in.
The packaging must remain closed unless lamps are being added or removed.
Used lamps must be clearly labeled as: “Universal Waste Lamps” or “Waste Lamps” or “Used Lamps.”
All broken lamps must be stored in a sealed container separate from intact lamps.
