What If They Break?

Not too long ago, there was a push to rid our homes of thermometers containing mercury. Now, we’re being pushed to use compact fluorescent lightbulbs that contain mercury. This seems a contradiction.

Curious About CFL Light Bulb Cleanup

While 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
