Dear Scienceman, Do you have an idea what we are supposed to do about these wonderful CFL bulbs that we all have bought that contain mercury? Now I have been told that when these new bulbs die, we are supposed to do something special with them? I've heard that it can cost as much as two thousand dollars if you drop one bulb - just to clean up the mercury that will be released? Is this really true? Do you know what we have to do? We supposedly are responsible for taking these bulbs to a toxic waste facility! How much of your time and energy do you want to spend, first looking and finding out where the closest facility is and then how much of our time and gas, do we want to spend, to take that one bulb, to the facility? If we don’t do this, Scienceman, what is our alternative?
