A s many of you know, December is Compact Fluorescent Light (CFL) month in Houston. CFLs make perfect stocking stuffers, and are great gifts for a New Year's Resolution. Remember if you have old burned-out bulbs; be sure that you properly dispose of them, as they do contain a very small amount of Mercury. There are several places you can recycle your CFL bulbs:
Westpark Consumer Recycling Center
