Proper light fixture recycling is not only good for the environment, but for some bulbs, it is required by law. Incandescent bulbs, halogens, LEDs, and fluorescent should all be recycled responsibly to avoid environmental contamination. A local commercial lighting company can help you practice responsible lighting recycling and contribute to a cleaner world.
