        A:

        Yes, fluorescent bulbs contain mercury and must be properly recycled. Many local hardware stores will accept and recycle bulbs. For case quantity amounts and larger, we offer recycling boxes that can be shipped to you and come with a return label. http://www.bulbs.com/Bulb_Recycling/results.aspx
