This video is bananas. But fluorescent bulbs are not bananas. So don't eat them, like these guys do, and also don't do any of the other things in this video. Criminey.

If you do have mercury-containing fluorescent bulbs that need to be disposed of, the EPA has a guide to what you need to do to recycle them. Your options include contacting waste-collection agencies, bringing them to local retailers that collect them, or sending them in to mail-back services. There is nothing about stacking them on some kind of rack and then jumping through them.
