    Recycling alkaline batteries and CFLs / florescent tubes

    Does anyone know where you are supposed to take alkaline batteries for recycling? How about florescent light bulbs (4-foot-long shop tubes and the newer "CFL" compact florescent lamps)? I have asked around repeatedly and nobody can give me an answer.

    We just dropped off our florescent and CFL bulbs last night at Lowes when we picked up some new ones and some LED's. They didn't have a common receptacle. We had to ask the service person and they have a return at the counter.
    I really, really like TB Bags!

      My County website has information about specific recycling items, but you've maybe tried that already?

        So glad you are taking the effort to recycle the batteries. Here is site where you can enter your zip code & the item, and see some locations. I have some printer cartridges to recycle, and this site told me that a Boy Scout troop collects them. Cool!

          I believe IKEA will take batteries and bulbs of all sorts. I also drop off batteries at Office Depot, the Home Depot, and Best Buy.
