Cleaning Up a CFL Bulb Breakage

by Marie Domenici

We now live in an age when everyone is becoming energy conscious, investing in alternative energy solutions such as solar, wind, geothermal. People are seeking a quick reduction in energy consumption by changing from conventional light bulbs to CFL (Compact Fluorescent Light) bulbs. But very few of the people I have spoken with know what to do in the event a CFL bulb breaks. DO NOT clean it up as you would a conventional bulb or standard broken glass. CFL contain Mercury!

Go to LIPA's website to learn how to safely clean up a broken CFL bulb and share this information with everyone you know.
