Anyone know where I can safely dispose of fluorescent tubes? I know they won't take them at this event.

Alameda County maintains several hazardous waste drop off stations. They are not open all of the time. They appear to rotate personnel between the stations so drop off dates & times vary. But, they will take most anything that isn't E-waste. This includes batteries, paint, fluorescent tubes, etc.

The Stopwaste.org website is quite helpful with info related to the disposal of items.

I have a seen a bin for bulbs at the Pleasanton Home Depot next to customer service. I am not sure if you can put in tubes as well.

I know Best Buy, and most places only take RECYCLABLE (REchargable) (recyclable) batteries!!!! I know, I drive around with a big bag permanently in my car, in case I ever find a place that will take DISPOSABLE (throw away) batteries.
Best Buy USE to take regular batteries, but 6 months ago the male greeter, stopped me, saying NO, ONLY recyclables!!

Local,
Pleasanton Public Library has battery collection bins, just inside the entrance on the left. They take disposables.
