CF as with all hazardous materials should be disposed of correctly. It would be beneficial to have a municipal program for regular collection of batteries, bulbs and other hazardous goods -- if it's not convenient, people won't do it. CF and other hazards ending up in the trash is purely a result of laziness.

Mick, I'd be interested to have a peek at the products and services you surround yourself with. There are so many hazardous chemicals used in manufacturing so many things that is impossible to live completely impact-free. If everyone burned candles for light, we'd be no better off (albeit the issues would be different than with CF).

I hate to break it to you, but by being humans we are by definition "murderers" in that we consume resources and create waste -- we have no choice but to cause a detriment to SOME creature SOMEwhere. So we have to choose our battles. Do you have an alternative to CF that you can suggest?
