LED are almost 100% recyclable

Did you know.
Another advantage of led over Fluorescent lights are the are 98% recyclable. 

Fluorescent lights contain toxic mercury .If you didn't know already Mercury and the phosphor inside the tubes are hazardous. This IS why it hard to offload our dead fluro tubes Broken bulbs release a small amount of toxic mercury as a gas and the rest is contained in the glass itself.  

LED that are close to a 100 % recyclable the plastic can be recycled or turned into pellets to make furniture or Children playground mats

So they are even cheaper than CFL in the long run and better for the environment
