    Recycling lightbulbs is a very important, but often tricky task. Yes, all lightbulbs can be recycled, but it needs to be done at a licensed EPA facility. It is actually illegal in California, Minnesota, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, and Wisconsin to throw away lightbulbs. Did you know the Mercury from one light bulb can pollute 6,000 gallons of water? There are many recycling programs that assist with this. I like lightbulbrecycling.com.  They will send you hazardous waste bags, and a prepaid fedex sticker. Fedex will pick the bags up and deliver them to the nearest recycling facility.
