      Comments about Philips Lighting 32 Watt, 48 Inch T8 Cool White Fluorescent Bulb:

      We needed to buy in bulk, but my concern was the cross country shipping. We received all 150 lights in a weeks time. Only 9 were broken in transit and we were credited right away.

      Great value and great customer service. I would definitely order again!

              A:

              Fluorescent lamps need to be recycled. There are a few options, if you have a small number of them, most local hardware stores or recycling centers will take them. If they are part of a larger re-lamping product, we offer a few products here: http://www.bulbs.com/Bulb_Recycling/results.aspx
