Still trying to find safe disposal/recycling options for the used CFLs. Obviously my google-fu is weak today but I've found ACT government advice that it is safe to dispose of one or two provided I wrap them in newspaper first...but it took about five links from a google search to get that much.

Actual recycling information is not casually available. Hence the post title.

Look government type people if you want people to use these sorts of bulbs and then safely dispose of them and bearing in mind that the disposal event is rare enough (as in once a year maybe) for the procedure to be easily forgotten then for [expletive deleted] sake make the procedure EASY TO FIND!!!!!!

Our council has hazardous waste days, or such waste can be dropped in special areas at the tip (or rather, waste transfer facility). The ACT 'one or two' seems a bit short sighted when you multiply it by residents and years.

But yes, easy to find would be good.

See! Local government is good for something after all.
