County Residents Can Get New LED Light Bulbs at Local Breweries. Wait, What?

Montgomery County residents have the opportunity to save money and energy by trading in old incandescent or compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs for free LED light bulbs thanks to a program by local breweries and the Montgomery County Department of Environmental Protection (DEP).

Participants may bring as many bulbs as they have available to receive a maximum of three or four LED bulbs for free.

DEP staff will explain what color light bulb is appropriate for various uses, show residents how to reduce their energy bills by switching to LED bulbs, and save money on electric bills.

The “Brews and Bulbs” program is a partnership with DEP, designed to assist residents in cutting down on electric bulls, and to help ensure that plastic and dangerous substances, like mercury, do not enter the waste stream.

During February and March, DEP will visit the breweries in Montgomery County. Here’s the schedule:

Sunday, February 17, 2019 from noon – 4 pm at Denizens Brewing Company
