Fluorescent Bulbs

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 CANNOT safely be thrown in the trash. Please bring your fluorescent tubes and CFLs to these locations for proper recycling (fees may apply):
