Business monthly bulb, electronics collection ending

The last monthly business bulb and electronic collection hosted by Dakota County will be Tuesday, June 13.  Businesses can still use the Very Small Quantity Generator Program to safely dispose of fluorescent bulbs and electronic equipment. Make an appointment to drop-off these materials by calling Rolland Meillier at 952-891-7545 or emailingrolland.meillier@co.dakota.mn.us.
 
Many private companies also offer collection for a fee. Visit www.dakotacounty.us and search business bulbs to learn more.
It is illegal to throw fluorescent lamps and electronics in the trash because they contain hazardous components such as mercury, lead, PCBs, mercury and cadmium.
