You know those compact fluorescent light bulbs you’ve been buying? Well, they contain small amounts of mercury and should be recycled instead of thrown in the trash such as you would an incandescent bulb. So where to disposal of compact florescent light bulbs? Seriously, supermarkets should offer this service. Everyone goes there regularly. But in the meantime bring them to Ace Hardware, Lowes, Quality Lighting on Wabash Ave. or Springfield Electric Company.
