New Brunswick will continue to maintain contact with the lamp manufacturing industry to ensure that progress is made to meet the CWS. New Brunswick will continue to use low mercury/energy efficient fluorescent lights in government buildings, wherever possible, and will encourage large property owners to use such lamps.
A link to the CWS for Mercury Containing Lamps and other relevant information will be placed on the Department’s web site, where public feedback will be solicited.
Access to Information:
Information related to New Brunswick’s progress towards achieving the Canada-Wide Standards will be placed on the Department’s web site. Other information will be provided to the public upon request.
New Brunswick will explore the feasibility of a recycling program for fluorescent lights, and will explore such opportunities with its Solid Waste Commissions.
Implementation of the CWS for Mercury Containing Lamps is expected to result in positive energy efficiency benefits within the Province.
