Why was there no opposition to this CFL nonsense?
There is no guarantee that these bulbs won’t break in recycling depots either.
Also consider that cans and bottles are recycled at a 60-70 per cent average so there is no guarantee that these bulbs will ever get recycled.
Why not wait until the LED bulbs come on the market, they are safe and less expensive?
