Frequently Asked Questions
Can I bring used Compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) to your Falcon Office? If not, how do I dispose of them?
Yes, MVEA has disposal containers available at both the Falcon and Limon offices. Another alternative is El Paso County Environmental Services, 3255 Akers Drive, Colorado Springs. For a list of other recycle centers in your area go online to Earth911.org.
MVEA highly recommends using a qualified recycling facility for disposal of CFL’s but, if you choose to place them in with normal garbage you should seal them in a plastic bag first and do not incinerate. If you use a waste agency, make sure they do not use incineration methods for disposal.
