ENERGY STAR® Lighting Program
Simple lighting changes can go a long way in saving money and energy at home. On average, ENERGY STAR® certified Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFL) last up to 10 times longer than the equivalent incandescent bulbs and use 75 percent less energy.
ENERGY STAR certified Light Emitting Diode (LED) bulbs are even more efficient and can last up to 25 times longer than a comparable incandescent. Before you replace your next light bulb check out the ENERGY STAR website.

Caring for Fluorescent & Compact Fluorescent Bulbs
Recycle CFL and fluorescent bulbs: These bulbs cannot be simply tossed into the garbage with your other trash. New Hampshire law requires residents to dispose of these bulbs properly. Here are a few disposal/recycling options for light bulbs:
- Find a participating lighting retailer offering free CFL recycling services.
- Check with your local transfer station/recycling facility for guidance.
- Dispose of mercury-containing products as part of your local hazardous waste project or through an authorized mercury recycler.
Clean-up measures for a broken fluorescent bulb: Remember, fluorescent bulbs contain a trace amount of mercury, so you need to take special care when cleaning up a broken bulb.
Please note: LED bulbs do not contain mercury and can be safely disposed of in household trash.
