Thread: Florescent tubes Disposal

    Default Florescent tubes Disposal

    Hi Everybody

    Could anybody please advise me, on how to dispose of florescent tubes?

    I have heard it is illegal to throw it in a normal rubbish bin, and that the vapor kills our drinking water, or something like that.

    Dont do what I did - my mom had brought two in to be replaced, and we went to visit a sports store first. So she leaned them against the counter, and I accidentally knocked one over. It sounded like a gunshot going off, and there was nothing of the bulb left over, just fine powder.

    Throw them like a rocket into a wall... It makes for a rather nice bang and an even better visual
