Leave it to private enterprise to pick up the slack

Fast fact: Alberta has no recycling program in effect for compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFL). You aren't supposed to put them in your blue bin and the City of Calgary's hazardous waste drop sites won't take them either. So they expect you to throw them out in the regular garbage.

Raise your hand if you knew that Home Depot takes them back as part of a voluntary program.
