[GreenYes] Re: Sales and discards of CFLs



John,

According to INFORM, see http://www.informinc.org/fact_P3fluorescentlamps.php
"620 million fluorescent lamps are discarded annually in the US,
releasing from 2 to 4 tons of mercury per year.1"

Bulbs," Journal of the Air & Waste Management Association, Vol. 53,
February 2003.
