CFL Cleanup

NightSide Weekend Commentary - Dan Rea Shines Some Light On LightbulbsJust who's bright idea was this?
Curious About CFL Light Bulb CleanupWhile I was vacationing in Florida, I saw a news report regarding the new fluorescent lights that will be replacing the incandescent bulbs. According to the report, these new bulbs contain mercury, but if they break we're simply to sweep up the remains and deposit them in the trash. Isn't this dangerous? We've all seen the commercial "Don't put mercury in the trash" regarding old batteries. - Mike, Milford
