Recycling can sometimes seem overwhelming when we are trying to do it right and recycle everything that can be recycled. The dilemma of finding a simpler way to locate drop off locations for household items, varies from the challenges of recycling on a larger scale within the parameters of businesses and other organizations. Today, I want you to take a deep breath and relax, while we work on one more inroad into simplifying recycling batteries and fluorescent bulbs; one of the most frustrating items households and businesses deal with when recycling. For households in Orange County, you have several options when trying to recycle batteries and fluorescent bulbs. The good news is that generally, these items can be recycled for households at no cost; the question is where and how? If you are in south Orange County you only have to visit the Laguna Hills Community Center which boasts collection boxes for both batteries and small fluorescent bulbs. Mission Viejo library also has a battery drop box and anywhere in Orange County, you can take your CFL type (small) fluorescent bulbs to Home Depot or Lowes, they both offer collection boxes for these curly guys. Then there are the state recycling centers, they will take your fluorescent bulbs, batteries and other toxic items, but remember, this is ONLY for household waste, businesses AND non-profits are not welcome!
So now you household folks know what to do, what about businesses and non-profits, like churches and other organizations? They are faced with paying for these items to be recycled, there are no free drop off locations for business waste like this and the list of available resources that can provide this service for them is small. With that said, the occurrences of inflated pricing for these services is not uncommon, so it becomes time consuming trying to not only locate the proper company to provide recycling services for these items, but doing enough research to know if you are paying too much. At Living Green Recycling, we have recognized this dilemma and met the challenge to provide full service recycling services to our clients, yes, even batteries and fluorescent bulbs.
