Recycle Your Burnt-Out CFL Bulbs in Dubai
Most people discard their burnt-out fluorescent bulbs just like any other common waste, risking safety to humans and damage to the environment from mercury in such lamps.
Dubai residents will soon have an easy option for safely disposing and recycling Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFL) that are widely used in the emirate’s buildings.
The Dubai Municipality is rolling out a campaign today to collect and recycle CFL bulbs, marking World Energy Day.
The civic body has tied up with a private firm for the environment department’s initiative, which will be inaugurated by the Director-General of Dubai Municipality, Hussain Nasser Lootah. Details
