What do I do if an LED lightbulb breaks?

Dispose of a broken LED lightbulb in the same way you would dispose of broken glass. LED lightbulbs do not contain hazardous materials. However, 95 percent of an LED lightbulb is recyclable, so recycling your LED lightbulbs is the best way to dispose of them. Simply call your local government or waste management company to learn the recycling policy in your area.
