Light bulbs in landfill
Danger, Will Robinson!
Light bulbs are dainty, little things that contain *GASP* mercury.
But if we don’t put them in the bin, where should we put them?
Why not recycle your old light bulbs at your nearest City library or Neighbourhood Service Centre today.
95% of the one million light bulbs sent to landfill in Australia each year can be recycled for glass, metals, phosphor powder and mercury.
In fact, they can even be recycled into products like glass wool insulation.
