How to dispose of incandescent light bulbs
Reuse working incandescent light bulbs (traditional household bulbs) or halogen light bulbs by giving to family/friends or posting on an online website like Kijiji.
Put old and broken incandescent light bulbs or halogen light bulbs in your black cart as garbage.
- Package items safely by putting the pieces into a puncture-resistant, non-breakable container (e.g. plastic tub, plastic pail, laundry detergent container, etc.)
- Or wrap in two layers of paper and place in a tied bag.
- Label as "sharps" with a permanent marker and put in your black cart.
You can also take properly packaged light bulbs to a City landfill. Landfill charges will apply.
