    I have had a few that burned out faster than an incandescent.

    Wrong!
    Have had 3-4 go out in the past 2 years.
    It would take a dozen hazmat people to clean it up if it were to break.
    Should be taken to a recycling center.
    But our local center doesn’t have a place for them, said to just put them in the trash to go into the landfill.

    Better living through bureaucracy.

    I have yet to have one last more than 14 months, their cost was more than the electricity that I saved.

    But they’re always guaranteed for at least five years… and everyone keeps their receipts…

    I have a bag with at least six burnt-out ones waiting for me to take to the recycle center. Poor quality light in the rooms from them as well.

    The problem is that they are not supposed to be covered. They are just a phase. LED lights are much better.

    But it takes four guys in hazmat gear to pick a broken one up.

    They do last long, but their death is spectacular – and stinky.

    Home Depot takes them and sells LED’s reasonably. Although, I do miss my incandescents.

    Home Depot in my town does not take them. My local municipal transfer station took it and “put it in the back” for the state to take care of .
