Red Deer residents can trade in three old incandescent or compact fluorescent light bulbs for three new LED bulbs starting October 25. 

The City of Red Deer is launching a new environmental initiative to encourage residents to make the change to LED light bulbs. 

“LEDs are more efficient and more cost effective,” said Lauren Maris, Environmental Program Specialist, “They use less energy than incandescent and CFL bulbs, and they can last up to 25,000 hours.” 

Residents can take three incandescent or CFL bulbs and exchange them for three free LED bulbs at the Kerry Wood Nature Centre from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., October 25 to November 8 or while supplies last. 

“We hope residents who may be on the fence will see the benefits of switching to LED bulbs and will make the more environmentally friendly choice in the future,” Maris said. 

The program is open to Red Deer residents and is limited to three bulbs per household.
