For incandescent light bulbs, the only real way to recycle them is to make art out of them or donate them to someone who wants to. Compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs), and with other energy-efficient lighting such as linear fluorescent and high intensity discharge (HID) lamps contain a very small amount of mercury, an element essential to achieving energy savings. Household hazardous waste collection facilities usually accept these types of light bulbs. You can find a recycling location for your state here: http://www.lamprecycle.org/
