Universal wastes are common household wastes considered hazardous that should be recycled and properly disposed of, usually items such as batteries, thermostats, and obsolete pesticides. Each Compact Fluorescent Light (CFL) bulb and fluorescent tube contains a small amount of mercury. Dry-cell batteries (alkaline, button cells, rechargeable) contain many potentially hazardous compounds, such as mercury, cadmium, nickel, lead, zinc, silver, manganese, and alkalines. Mercury thermostatsare also subject to special disposal requirements.
