What do I do if an LED Light Bulb breaks?

LED Light Bulbs do not contain hazardous materials, and therefore can safely be disposed of the same way you would dispose a broken glass. However, 95% of an LED Light Bulb is recyclable, so recycling your LED Light Bulbs is the best way to dispose of them. Simply call your local Waste Management Company to learn the recycling policy in your area.
