Collecting Mercury Bulbs in Rhode Island - Participating Retailers

Compact fluorescent lightbulbs are a great way to cut your carbon emissions (and electric bills) but they contain mercury, which makes disposal a potential problem. Even the small amount of mercury found in the bulbs will accumulate in the tissues of fish and otehr species when the bulbs are simply thrown in the trash. Properly recyclethe bulbs by bringing them to a participating hardware storm and protect our lakes, river and bay! See http://cleanwateraction.org/page/collecting-mercury-bulbs-rhode-island-participating-retailers for a list of hardware stores (and maybe buy a few LED bulbs while you are there which use even less electricity, do not contain mercury, and last a lot longer).
