Can I recycle light bulbs?

Light bulbs are not accepted in any local recycling program. Fluorescent tubes and compact fluorescent light bulbs contain trace amounts of mercury and must be disposed of at a hazardous waste facility. Dispose of all other light bulbs in the garbage, including incandescent, halogen and LED types.
