More CFL Disposal Options Sought
If you're going to sell them, you should help people get rid of them. That's essentially the philosophy that Ace Hardware of La Crosse manager Jeff Roble says his store has followed since they started selling compact fluorescent lights. Ace has a special disposal box in the store for the mercury-containing CFLs. A well-used box, says Roble; probably fills up once a week. Legislation going through the works in Madison seeks to make CFL disposal more convenient in the state. The state says there's only eight places in the La Crosse area that accepts CFLs for disposal.
