    Only in fluorescent bulbs . You can turn those in at Home Depot for disposal.

    Fluorescent, newer fluorescent (T8) and the curley Q lights contain mercury. Very toxic. Dispose of old bulbs in approved manner, check with your sanitation company for information.

    Old incandescent and LED bulbs do not contain gas or mercury.
