How Bulbs Are Recycled

 

 

Residents and businesses who have Agralite Electric Cooperative, Lake Region Cooperative Electric Association (LREC), Alexandria Light and Power (ALP), Runestone Electric Association (REA), and Xcel Energy may recycle their fluorescent bulbs at Pope/Douglas Solid Waste Management free of charge. Customers of other power companies are not eligible as recycling is paid for by Agralite, LREC, ALP, REA, and Xcel. Pope/Douglas Solid Waste Management manages the program but does not pay any of the fees involved.

 

Have Ottertail Power?

Ottertail Power Customers are encouraged to contact Ottertail Power for bulb recycling options.
Ottertail Power does not currently participate in the Pope/Douglas Cooperative Bulb Recycling Program at this time. Ottertail Power website.

Businesses with more than 50 bulbs must fill in the recycling form below or call in advance and request that a registration form be sent or faxed to them. They will be notified when a date has been set for them to bring in their bulbs. The bulbs must be counted by bulb type. The bulbs are not to be taped together or shrink wrapped as the recycler will not accept them if they are.

Bulb drop-off is scheduled every 2 months and can be found under the Events Page.
