Get Free Ecofriendly Lightbulbs Throughout FeBREWary

FeBREWary, a monthlong celebration of Maryland craft beer, also offers an opportunity to lower your utility bills – saving you money for more beer!

Visit one of these Brews and Bulbs events and swap old incandescent and compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs for up to four new LEDs:

  • Wednesday, Feb. 5 from 5-7 p.m. at Saints Row Brewing, 1211-1213 Taft St.
  • Friday, Feb. 7 from 5-7 p.m. at 7 Locks Brewing, 12227 Wilkins Ave.
  • Friday, Feb. 28 from 5-7 p.m. at True Respite Brewing Company, 7301 Calhoun Place #600, Derwood.

On average, LEDs consume 80% less energy than incandescent light bulbs, saving energy and saving you money. LEDs are also safer for the environment. CFL bulbs that are thrown away often break, releasing mercury into the environment.

When CFL bulbs are recycled, their components can be repurposed or reused, avoiding potential hazards or damage to the environment. Unbroken CFL bulbs can be recycled for free by bringing them to the county’s Shady Grove Transfer Station, 16101 Frederick Road, Derwood, or to most major home improvement stores, like Lowe’s, Home Depot or Ace Hardware.
