Neon Lights

Legal Considerations

It is illegal to place neon lights in the trash because they contain mercury.​

Disposal

Bring neon lights to the household hazardous waste collection sites for free.

  • Remove bulb from fixture.
  • Place bulb in original packaging or between cushioning fabric to prevent breaking.
  • Do not tape bulbs together.

If a neon light breaks, refer to the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency's website.
