    This for a small apartment in a mild climate, where I turn the heat on maybe ten days per year. I'm conscientious about things like leaving the TV, VCR, microwave etc. unplugged and am gradually replacing light bulbs with CFLs.

    My energy bills have gone up a bit since 1986 when I first moved in--I still remember that first bill; it was six dollars and some change.

      I don't have any idea where to take them for recycling in my area (small town in southern Ohio, not close to any major metro area) and am not comfortable with the idea of putting mercury into a local landfill. On the other hand, my electric bill is between $20 and $30 per month, so I'm not a huge energy consumer.

      Who you gonna call?
