Tanning beds use bulbs that contain the toxic metal mercury. Before disposal, a tanning bed’s bulbs and ballast must be removed and managed separately. “Batteries Plus Bulbs” specializes in recycling bulbs and lighting ballasts including those from tanning beds and has locations in York County.

After bulb removal, tanning beds can be disposed of at the York County Resource Recovery Center (YCRRC) or Modern Landfill (717-246-2686). Click here for information on YCRRC rates and hours.
