The Clackamas County Recycle at Work program is offering to help county businesses recycle fluorescent bulbs this year.

“These lamps are the largest source of mercury in our waste stream, and mercury is extremely toxic,” said Julane Potter, county employee.

Recycle at Work, an initiative of Clackamas County’s Office of Sustainability, allows qualifying county businesses to recycle up to 30 bulbs for free in 2014 by following these steps:

1. Meet with the county’s Recycle at Work specialist to obtain a waste review and a bulb collection container.

2. Collect the bulbs during this year.

3. Complete an inventory form and schedule an appointment with Metro South’s hazardous waste facility in Oregon City to drop off the bulbs.

4. Drop off the bulbs for recycling before Dec. 31.
