Light Bulbs

Solana Center accepts compact fluorescent (CFL), LED, and other light bulbs for recycling. We do not accept incandescent light bulbs.


You can drop off your old batteries at Solana Center for recycling! To prepare your batteries for recycling, package used batteries in a plastic bag. For added safety, tape over the contact points to prevent accidental shocks. Do not use duct tape for this.

Ink, Cell Phones and Small Electronics

Additionally, you may sign up to recycle inkjets, cell phones, and small electronics from the comfort of your own home! Solana Center has partnered with Planet Green to provide recyclers an opportunity to ship their ink cartridges, cell phones, and small electronics to a recycler for free!
