Disposing of CFL's (Fluorescent Light Bulbs) - 09/20/07 09:55 PM
Use Care When Disposing of Fluorescent Light Bulbs
The rise in popularity of energy-saving compact fluorescent light bulbs has brought with it concern about the mercury that is an essential part of the bulb manufacture. However, the level of the toxic metal is in a CFL's tubing is relatively small, about 5 milligrams. By comparison, a mercury thermometer contains about 500 mg of the substance an old-style thermostat has about 5000 mg.
That's not to say that a CFL (fluorescent light bulb) should be treated carelessly. If one happens to break, it's important to follow these procedures:
•1. Open windows nearby.
•2. Sweep up bulb
