"New Hampshire’s program to recycle mercury-laced low-energy fluorescent lamps is going dark because of budget cuts. Funding runs out this month for a five-year-old program that allows residents to recycle long fluorescent light bars and compact fluorescent lamps at participating hardware stores. Some municipal landfills accept the lamps for recycling, but many, including that in Manchester, do not. " (06/21/11)
