MJM Electric Cooperative members can drop off used compact fluorescent lights for recycling at the cooperative's office, located at 264 N. East Street in Carlinville, Illinois.
CFLs use four times less energy than standard incandescent light bulbs to produce the same amount of light. This saves electricity, which reduces your bill and reduces the amount of emissions from power plants since less power is needed for the energy-efficient CFLs.
You can help reduce those emissions even more by recycling used CFLs. Drop any used lights off at our front desk. We'll package them and ship them to a recycling facility in Wisconsin operated by world-renowned recycling leader Veolia.
