Please do not dispose of CFL bulbs in the garbage

Just before leaving my computer tonight I came across ‘Seal CLF light bulbs in bags prior to disposal’ the Clarion Ledger in Mississippi. They claim “Residential homeowners can dispose of bulbs with household garbage. However, you should seal the bulb in a plastic bag for the next trash collection.”

This has to be the most absurd and reckless recommendation I have ever heard. It is precisely this ignorant and reckless type of suggestion that got our planet into the current situation. Please folks, be sure to take your CFL bulbs when they are finished, to a recycling center and NEVER put them in the garbage.
