Energy efficient bulb disposal
I'm not sure if everyone is aware of this, but since many people are using CFLs, florescent tubs and other energy saving bulb I thought I'd mention it. Many of these bulbs contain mercury and other elements that aren't very good to be around. If you cut yourself with a broken bulb you can get mercury poising and nasty stuff like that. You also don't want to use a vacuum to clean up any broken bulbs because it just spreads mercury dust throughout the air. It's better to carefully sweep up and properly dispose of. I do believe that T5s aren't as bad as some of the others, but don't quote me on that.
Just wondering, where does everyone dispose of their old bulbs?
