Quick Facts.

CFL + Mercury

The average CFL lightbulb contains enough mercury (5mg) to render 300,000 gallons of water toxic; undrinkable for us and unsafe for fish.  Some manufactures have reduced the mercury amounts to around 2mg.

The message: It is great to purchase CFL lightbulbs for your hosue, but with that comes the responsibility to recycle these.  Visit Earth 911 for location in our area.
