CFL Bulb Recycling

CFL Bulb RecyclingCompact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) help conserve natural resources like coal and gas by using far less electricity than common incandescent bulbs. CFLs last longer, too. Unfortunately, some good things do end and your CFL will eventually burn out.

All compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs), including ENERGY STAR® qualified bulbs, contain a small amount of mercury. Yet they are safe to use. They do not emit mercury when they are intact, in use, properly stored, handled, and/or installed. Because CFLs do contain a small amount of mercury, the bulbs should be recycled properly and not thrown in the trash. By recycling the bulbs, you are helping prevent the release of mercury into the environment. Plus, almost all components of the bulbs can be reused.

Stoughton Utilities has an easy way for you responsibly dispose of your dark CFLs, so don't throw them in the trash can! You can take your old CFL bulbs to Asleson's True Value or Stoughton Lumber - Ace Hardware and Stoughton Utilities will collect these old CFLs for free and see that they are properly recycled. This collection program is funded by our Commitment to Community program. While you're there, don't forget to purchase a replacement ENERGY STAR® CFL bulb!

And when outside of Stoughton, Focus on Energy has made it easy for you by partnering with nearly 400 retailers across the state to offer free CFL recycling. Simply bring in your expired, unbroken CFLs to a participating retailer near you.

Emerging Technology Incentives

Focus on Energy works with developers and businesses to accelerate the deployment and commercialization of new energy-saving and renewable energy technologies in Wisconsin. Businesses in Wisconsin are saving millions of dollars a year in energy costs by adopting emerging technologies with Focus on Energy's help and at the same time making great strides to protect the environment.

An Emerging Technology differs from best practice energy saving technology in that it is relatively new to Wisconsin. Energy saving technologies with proven implementations in Wisconsin are generally considered best practices. But an Emerging Technology is a product that has been fully developed and tested, from which the use will significantly reduce the consumption of energy in a commercial or industrial setting, yet has seen limited implementation in Wisconsin. For assistance with implementation or incentives for best practice energy saving technology visit Focus on Energy.

ENERGY STAR® Lighting

ENERGY STAR® LightingLighting accounts for about 20% of annual household electricity bills, or approximately $200 per year. The higher the bulb wattage you use, the more electricity that’s needed to make it burn bright and more electricity used means higher energy costs for you. You can save money by switching to energy-efficient lighting. Generally, the most energy-efficient types of home lighting are CFLs and LEDs. Both provide high-quality light, use less energy, and last longer than standard bulbs. By using less energy, efficient lighting reduces pollution and is better for the environment.

Focus on Energy’s ENERGY STAR® Lighting Program can help you save money and lower energy consumption. Focus on Energy is partnering with retailers around Wisconsin to offer instant discounts or coupons on ENERGY STAR® qualified lighting products at participating retailers for select lighting products, while supplies last.
