    MH bulbs contain mercury which is incredibly bad on the enviornment.
    1 ounce can contaminate hundreds of thousands of gallons of drinking water.  Putting these in our landfills is not only bad for our enviornment, but potentially hazardous to us as well.
    We have partered with Ice Caps REEF program to recycle our MH bulbs at the Fall Fest.
    Just bring your old MH bulbs along & drop them into the specially marked recyling bucket & we will get them to Ice Cap who will recycle them
    Thank You

    I have at least 10 old bulbs I plan on bringing, maybe bring an extra bucket, heh actually maybe I'll just bring them in a bucket, not like i don't have any extra of those.

    GREAT PROGRAM though,Mercury is bad news Charlie Brown.
