Don’t Look Up

This weekend, my sister and I tackled replacing the dropped ceiling in our basement (detailed post to come). Part of that task involved replacing a bunch of burned out fluorescent tubes. Did you know they contain mercury? Good thing she broke one! After we carefully cleaned up the mess we were left wondering how to dispose of the bulbs.

So we got hunting on the internets.

And I found Earth911.com. What a resource! I easily found a bunch of locations where I could drop off the bulbs, and a few other items such as laquer or cleaning supplies.

We aren’t changing the lighting in the basement even though the required bulbs can be hazardous because they actually save energy, we know where to dispose of them, and we don’t have the money/skills/creativity to change them out for something different.
