Do your part by recycling appliances and CFLs safely through Wright-Hennepin.
As a service to members, Wright-Hennepin accepts compact fluorescent lights (CFLs), regular fluorescent lights and certain appliances for recycling at its headquarters in Rockford (6800 Electric Drive). A fee is charged to cover the cost of recycling. Per Minnesota state law, fluorescent bulbs must be recycled,* rather than thrown in the garbage.
CFLs and fluorescent ballasts can be dropped off on weekdays between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m.
On Wednesdays between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m., the cooperative also accepts some appliances, including:
