Light Bulbs and Artificial Lighting
Is it safe to put one of the new fluorescent compact light bulbs in the trash?
They supposedly have some mercury in them, which makes them not
suitable for landfill. The old bulbs become illegal in Australia
next year but nowhere I know do they have arrangements to recycle
How do you dispose of fluorescent tube light bulbs?
