How do we dispose of old uvb bulbs?

I’m wondering how I’m supposed to dispose of old uvb bulbs? I have several old uvb bulbs that I need to get rid of. Anyone know? Is it safe to put them in the trash?
We can’t where I live, it’s a special one like batteries here. Only collects 2x a year in our local town. I live in the country, City is a bit different I’m sure.
I think home depots (at least where I live) collect them.

I've known others to wrap them in a heavy garbage bag then break the bulb with a hammer and then put them in the trash...

Not saying that's what you should do but I've known people who do that.
