Incandescent, LED, or halogen light bulbs go in the garbage. Wrap them in newspaper and place them in the centre of your garbage bag, or place them inside a cardboard box labelled "sharps."

Fluorescent light bulbs/tubes and compact fluorescent light bulbs containe a small amount of mercury and must be handled as Household Hazardous Waste:

  • Take to the County Mobile HHW Depot
