How to Dispose of Fluorescent Tubing
Incorrect disposal is harmful to:
- The Environment – If florescent tubes go to landfill, there is the possibility that they will be incinerated, if the mercury inside the tubes is burnt, it will contaminate the environment.
- Wildlife – If mercury contaminates water supplies, it could have detrimental effects on local wildlife.
- Humans – there is the possibility of mercury poisoning in humans.
