According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), most fluorescent lamps contain enough mercury to be considered a hazardous waste because of the mercury content. If placed in the landfill, the mercury becomes an environmental threat by migrating into the air and groundwater supplies. Benefits to recycling the fluorescent bulbs include saved landfill space, reduced raw material production needs, and preventing toxic material from harming the environment.
LED technology is one option that is proving to be an expected viable alternative to mercury-containing lamps in the future. LED's have been around since the 1960's and offer energy efficiency, maintenance savings, impact resistant, durability and other benefits. They are significantly more energy efficient than incandescent and fluorescent lamps.
