Switch to LED Bulbs and Save
Why choose LEDs over incandescent bulbs?
- They use up to 75% less energy than incandescent bulbs.
- Each bulb can save you about $80 in electricity costs over its lifetime.*
- LEDs last at least 15 times longer, so you don't have to replace them as often, which is great for hard-to-reach places.
- LEDs come in a variety of styles, lumens and temperatures — from dimmable candelabras to bright spotlights — so you'll find options to fit almost any fixture in your home.
How to Choose the Right LED for You
Georgia Power has partnered with The Home Depot to offer recycling for compact fluorescent light bulbs at the retailer's stores in Georgia. Georgia Power sponsors in-store bins at all 88 The Home Depot locations in the state, which creates the state's most widespread recycling program for CFLs.
For more information about the CFL recycling program, visit www.homedepot.com/ecooptions.
If a CFL should break in your home, EPA provides cleanup guidelines that can be performed by the general public.
More than 95 percent of an LED bulb is recyclable; simply call your local waste management company to learn its policies for collecting and recycling.
Since LED bulbs do not contain mercury and do not require special recycling, non-working LED bulbs can be placed in the garbage.
