Maine to require CFL manufacturers to recycle

The Maine Legislature has passed a bill that would make Maine the first state in the nation to require manufacturers of compact fluorescent light bulbs to set up recycling programs to keep mercury out of the environment.

The bill requires that a system be in place by 2011 for collecting and recycling the bulbs.
