LCD backlights composed of CCFL (Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lights) may contain very small levels of mercury within the glass tubing. Mercury is an essential part of CCFLs to allow the bulb to be an efficient light source. No mercury is released when the bulbs are intact (not broken) or in use1. Please dispose of properly.
