Ikea "greening" may not be big news to some of you, but tucked in a corner just past the check outs at our local Ikea was a recycling center we hadn't ever seen before. The spot gives you a place to recycle your compact fluorescent lights, batteries and even your regular light bulbs (the sign reads, "Why not?").
The other thing we appreciate about this option is the education that people receive when checking out the recycling center: it tells people why recycling these options is important.
CFLs and batteries contain heavy metals that shouldn't be thrown out with the regular trash...we're glad to know of one more place that will help us keep them out of the regular trash.
