Would'nt it be something if a big box retailer like Home depot took the high road in helping to properly dispose of the new and increasingly popular energy efficient mercury filled cfl light bulbs. Its one thing to promote the idea that saving energy helps save the planet by reducing toxic carbons emitted from energy producing plants while allowing our land fills to be potentially contaminated with improperly disposed of
mercury filled cfl bulbs. When will not only the manufacturers but the retailers who will in the end make enormous profits by promoting
this product take responsibility for its proper disposal. Which will in turn help to educate the public as well. Or do we do what we Americans always do and wait till its to late and its nessessary to spend billions to clean up all our land fills. I work for home depot and I do promote
the cfl bulbs to my customers but I would be more comfortable doing so if I knew that they would be disposed of properly .
