    To disassemble the bulbs and lick the heavy metals in the electronic ballast. We know how to recycle lead and other heavy metals, so work on getting your community to require recycling sometime before 2038, and you should be all set.

    The entire state of VT requires all electronics, CFLs, thermostats, and batteries to be recycled. I'm pretty sure we can get the law updated sometime over the next 25 years to add LEDs to the list.
