Recycling Resources

Upgrading to more efficient electronics and lighting can help you protect the environment and so can recycling your old products.

CFL Recycling

The energy savings provided by CFLs are great for the environment. However, CFLs contain a small amount of mercury that can be harmful to the environment if broken and burnt out CFLs are not disposed of properly. Dakota Electric offers multiple recycling options to make proper disposal easy, convenient and affordable.
