I recently received a CFL hanging on my door from the DWP. I didn’t order them, I didn’t ask them to do this but they decided to take it upon themselves to deliver this piece of hazardous waste to my home. As I read the enclosed booklet in the bag, it says it is illegal to throw it in the trash and that I have to take it to a hazardous waste diposal center when it burns out.
So basically you are going to try to force me to use this toxic waste lightbulb and then make it illegal for me to get rid of it? Are you friggin’ kidding me!? I called them to ask what I am supposed to do with this since I can’t throw it anyway and some Shaniqua sounding witch told me to call 311 to see where I can dispose of this. I shouldn’t have to dispose it at all, I didn’t want it!!!
This is the problem with the “green” movement, they are frickin’ Nazis! They order you to use their products whether you want them or not and then forbid you from getting rid of it! How are you going to make something so toxic that it can’t be disposed of in a regular fashion? This is not like car oil where most people are getting oil changes and therefore are not directly responsible for disposing of it themselves. Not only that, your car is not inside your house! Hey DWP, why don’t you drop some urnanium off at my place too and then force me to get rid of it?
I have used a CFL before (and I threw it away when it burned out! This is before the booklet let me know otherwise!) and it didn’t last five years. It didn’t last one year. It didn’t even last six months! So I don’t want to hear how much longer CFLs last! It is a lie! They do not! So basically they are more expensive, don’t last nearly as long as the incandescent bulbs and are more toxic! Oh let me run out and get a whole bunch more! Do I look stupid, DWP! This is nothing but a scam and I am not playing along. You can keep your stupid CFLs because I have seen the light!
