Fluorescent and compact fluorescent light bulbs do offer a number of

these guidelines to properly dispose of these bulbs:
- DO NOT dispose of them in your regular trash.
- Place bulbs in a cardboard box or other container that will help
ensure they do not get broken.
- Bring the bulbs to a
Waste collection event. Compact fluorescent light bulbs may
also be recycled at any local
ACE Hardware retailer.
