[GreenYes] Re: FW: [GreenYes] special containers for collection of CFL's?


Eric,
Good questions, I don't know. I've never used their program, as our county
collects CFL's/flourescents. But I see the box you've pictured below says
Veolia Environmental Services on it.

Not sure if any of these programs are any good or not. But passing them on
as they're what I've seen out there while surfing the web...

So I went to the site mentioned below since this issue of a collection bin
for CFL's is a real issue, and this is what I found (see below). Did I miss
something, or is this all they offered? Do we know what happens to them on
the other end? Is this really the best available option we have today?

Hi there,

As the winter holidays approach we are getting requests from faith-based
groups and multi-family locations for "green" holiday socials and other
special localized events. They want to have special collections for unusual
wastes such as CFL's batteries, cell phones and the like. I have seen boxes
designed to collect cell phones without crashing them together. Anyone know
of something similar to collect CFL's and prevent breakage?



Thanks,

Muriel
