Set Clocks Back Nov. 2 — Recycle Batteries & CFLs

CFL RecyclingRemember to set your clocks back one hour on Sunday, November 2.

Daylight Saving Time is a good reminder to test your home’s smoke detectors and change out old batteries. As winter approaches, it’s also a great time to replace burned-out light bulbs with energy-efficient CFL light bulbs.

Old fluorescent bulbs and tubes, Ni-Cad and Lithium rechargeable and other hazardous batteries can be disposed of free of charge at Seattle’s Household Hazardous Waste stations and several other convenient locations, including Bartell Drug stores.

Incandescent light bulbs can be disposed in the garbage. Alkaline batteries, such as the ones AA, AAA, C, 9-volt and D, can either be disposed in Seattle’s curbside garbage cans as they are not considered hazardous, or dropped off for recycling at Seattle’s Household Hazardous Waste stations and other convenient locations, such as Whole Foods.

For information on where to dispose of household hazardous waste, including station locations and hours, contact or 206-296-4692.

Thank you for the sensible critique. Me and my neighbor were just preparing to do some research on this. We got a grab a book from our area library but I think I learned more from this post. I am very glad to see such wonderful information being shared freely out there.

I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your site?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images.
Maybe you could space it out better?
