Q: Where should bulbs go when they die?
A: Bring them by Omega Too. 2204 San Pablo Ave. Berkeley, CA
As long as they are under 20", incandescent or fluorescent bulbs are fine. We have been working with the city of Berkeley to be a recycle point drop off center. Our hope is to reduce the amount of mercury going out in to land fills and the ocean.
About the only thing we can't help with is long fluorescent tubes. Those the recycle center considers 'Commercial grade' lighting, and not 'single home lighting' so they charge money to recycle them. As much as we'd like to help with those too, it is not in our budget.
