Burger: For your information, Home Depot will take the CFL for free. It is not true that flourescent tubes were recycled free. It was during the Bush Admin. that they were required to be recylced, as well as they should be. There is mercury in those tubes and they should not be sent to the landfills. However, in my checking, companies that take the tubes for recycling in Green Bay were charging more to recycle the tubes than I originally paid for them. Go figure.
