Bartell’s has free light bulb recycling

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.
