Benefits of LED Lights Replacing CFL and Environmental Protection Recycle

What is an LED light bulb from BROSintl®?
Replacing your lighting with LED bulbs is one of the easiest things you can do to save electricity and money in your home! LED (light-emitting-diode) lighting surpasses the efficiency of existing technologies, such as CFLs (compact fluorescent lamps) and incandescent bulbs.

Environmental Considerations

Fluorescent lighting, like linear fluorescent tubes and compact fluorescent lamps (CFL bulbs), contain small amounts of mercury, so they must be recycled at a local collection site because they are banned from going in the garbage.
  • Before recycling a working CFL or fluorescent tube, consider using it to in a place where light is not used very often. While LEDs may outperform fluorescent bulbs, there are few reasons to recycle a fluorescent bulb when it is still working.
  • CFL recycling
If you're replacing a burned-out or old CFL be sure to visit one of these convenient locations that recycle CFLs for free: Bartell Drugs, Home Depot, Lowes, McLendon Hardware and SCL's North and South Service Centers.
