Building Material Transparency: managing fluorescent lamps safely and legally
Join us to explore the challenges and opportunities surrounding the legal, safe management of mercury-containing products (e.g., fluorescent lamps). Disposing mercury products in the trash is illegal in Massachusetts, yet only 31% of fluorescent lamps in the state are recycled. The remaining 69% pose a danger to public health and the environment. Come learn how YOU can promote worker safety, protect the environment, and build material transparency through this multi-stakeholder conversation.
