Broken fluorescent lights
Fluorescent lights contain a small amount of mercury inside the glass tube, so if you accidentally break one, it needs to be disposed of correctly by:
- turning off your heating and cooling
- opening doors and windows to naturally ventilate the room
- carefully sweeping it up wearing disposable rubber gloves
- wrapping it in paper and disposing of it in your rubbish bin.
