How to Recycle LED Bulbs


Energy efficiency is a top priority in achieving a greener and more stable environment. Many homes and businesses have turned to LED bulbs to reduce their energy consumption and monthly electricity bills. High-quality LED bulbs have an average life expectancy of 50,000 hours, while incandescent bulbs have a life of only about 1,200 hours, and compact fluorescent bulbs last about 8,000 hours. Unlike CFL bulbs, LED bulbs do not contain mercury, so it is easier and safer to recycle them.

Please contact your local recycling center and ask if there is a special LED bulb limit. Because LED bulbs do not contain mercury, are not considered harmful substances, so you can safely recover, but each recycling center may have their own agreement.

The package burns the LED bulb safely and delivers it to the LED bulb for recycling.

If the company has a recycling or replacement plan, the LED bulb will be burned to your purchase of hardware stores or Internet companies. Because LED bulbs are expensive, many companies have on-site recycling programs that allow customers to bring their used light bulbs and batteries to local stores so that stores can be recycled.
