Software vs Hardware

Recycling TRP Electronic Products:

LED drivers are simply power supplies designed specifically for powering LED light engines. All power supplies are primarily made of electronic components like PC boards, semiconductors, capacitors, transformers, copper wire, etc. The drivers may also have significant amounts of aluminum, steel or plastic cases and hardware as major mechanical components. LED engines and electronic controls have varying amounts of similar materials used in power supplies. All of these products have components that can be recycled. Collect such electronic devices separately from household waste and dispose of them in the same way as other consumer electronic goods. Refer to local recycling regulations, in your state, to determine the proper way to dispose of large amounts of electronic goods.
