Compact Fluorescent Light Bulb Safety and Disposal Tips Video

roadskater's picture
Here's a quick video I found regarding what to do with good bulbs gone bad. I had noted that compact fluorescent light bulbs are marked as containing mercury, Hg. I wondered what to do if the glass part of a CFL (compact fluorescent light bulb) breaks. Apparently you shouldn't use the vaccuum or even sweep to get the materials up. First, open a window and leave the house for fifteen minutes, then use a stiff card and/or sticky tape as shown in the video. Wow. Well I hope I can remember this. CFLs seem to be worthy even with this mercury hazard, as shown in some of the following links... http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/video-hub/home--garden/home-appliance... http://www.epa.gov/mercury/spills/ http://www.lamprecycle.org/brokenbulbs.shtml http://www.energystar.gov/ia/partners/promotions/change_light/downloads/...
