Here in Germany we are mad about assorting & recycling which makes us have many, many heaps at home… (just counted 11…)

Untill recently at my place that FL issue was cared for by the community as well as the county. One could wait for the biannual `special wasteŽ truck to visit the community (which costs were included within the local yearly waste deposit fee) bring it to a central county special waste collecting centre or go to an electrical store and pay about 50cents per tube for delivering it.
Now there is a federal regulation that all electrical/electronic goods have to be deposited seperately and that the very industry has to pay for it. Now there is at least one collecting point per community, where one can drop (or rather not…) the FL tube in a metal casket.
