Only incandescent and halogen light bulbs can go in the gray cart.

Alternatives

Install more energy-efficient lighting alternatives. LEDs are the most energy-efficient light bulbs, followed by CFLs (which are considered Household Hazardous Waste when burned-out).

These are a multiple material item (e.g. non-recyclable glass & metal), so not practically recyclable. Incandescent bulbs are being phased out of commercial scale manufacture due to their inefficiency.
