All 56 Bartell’s Drugs stores, including ours at 120 N. 85th St., are now recycling compact fluorescent light bulbs for free.
Bartell’s is working with Total Reclaim, Seattle-based recycling firm. CFL bulbs contain small amounts of potentially harmful mercury and safe disposal of the bulbs keeps mercury out of landfills. Bartell’s will accept mini-twists, flood, globe, 3-way bulbs and other CFL bulbs.
Fluorescent tube lights are not accepted at this time, but here’s a list of other locations around the area that will accept them, including Greenwood True Value Hardware at 7201 Greenwood Ave. N.
