BAN ON SALE OF MERCURY BULBS: Retailers that sell fluorescent bulbs will no longer be able to sell screw-based CFLs after February 17, 2023 and 4 foot general purpose fluorescent tubes after January 1, 2024.
It is extremely important that these bulbs (and other hazardous products) are disposed of properly. Visit Vermont’s Mercury Reduction Campaign website (www.mercvt.org) and the Agency of Natural Resources webpage contains additional information on fluorescent and mercury added bulbs.
