Fluorescent tube bulbs are the long, cylindrical glass tubes you see in overhead lights, but also come in circular and U-shaped fluorescent tubes.
Compact fluorescent (CFL) bulbs are easily identified by their hallmark curlicue design.
These light bulbs contain a small amount of mercury and can not safely be thrown in the trash. Please bring your fluorescent tubes and CFLs to these locations for proper recycling (fees may apply):

Incandescent, Halogen and LED or Light-Emitting Diode light bulbs do not contain hazardous chemicals, so it is safe to dispose of them in the trash. However, they do contain some recyclable components and can also be brought the locations above.
