how can the benefits of using cfls be maximized



  1. 0 Votes

    To maximize their environmental benefit it is important that CFLs are recycled and do not end up in the landfill. Many large retailers such as the Home Depot and Ikea have a collection box in their stores. Some municipalities also have programs for disposing household hazardous materials such as paint and batteries and may have a program for mercury containing products depending on your location. If a CFL should break, proper clean-up procedures need to be followed.

    Also frequent on and off cycling can reduce the life of CFLs so keep them where their benefits can be maximized – common areas, bedrooms, and perhaps the master bathroom.
