    Breaking the fluorescent light is hazardous as they contain mercury and phosphor ........dont do it.....

    yes my friend fluorescent light has mercury and phosphors but now a days phosphors is not used and mercury-vaporgasand the amount of mercury in a fluorescent lamp varies from 3 to 46 mg, depending on lamp size. Newer lamps contain less mercury of 3–4 mg and up to 2006 12mg is used. so stop mercury sulfur is used to form mercury sulfide.

    A quantity of 25 kg of dust sulfur is enough for 1000 tubes and the easiest way to combine sulfur and mercury is to cover a group of fluorescent tubes with sulfur dust and break them.
