RE: [greenyes] fire detector recycling?
It is my understanding that the manufacturer is required to accept smoke detectors containing Americium. You could check with the Nuclear Reg. Commission fot term of the license.

At the City of Austin's home chem facility (at least four years ago when I

check with the manufacturer to see if they will take them back.  If you want
to see what the current manager of the home chem facility is doing with them
call Tony Davee, 512-974-4345.
