Does your fluorescent light ballast contain PCB’s? Before EPA banned the manufacture of PCB’s in 1978, PCBs were used in the manufacturing of fluorescent light ballasts. The use of PCB’s in ballasts manufactured prior to 1978 was not regulated by the EPA. All light ballasts manufactured since 1978 which do not contain PCBs should be marked by the manufacturer with the statement “No PCB’s”.
The Phosphor found inside fluorescent lamps – not only the familiar tubes, but the new “energy saver” lamps designed to replace conventional incandescent light bulbs – contains mercury. For that reason, used fluorescent lamps need to be handled and disposed of carefully. When one breaks or implodes, it releases mercury into the air and anyone nearby may be exposed to the vapors.

Off site waste preparation is a very sensible avenue for generators and/or contractors concerned with generator liability and keeping costs down. Ultimately what it offers is “secure” storage containers, and all preparation done off site, further reducing liability. It is also especially effective in areas where space is limited and noise pollution is a factor. As in the case of on site preparation, it is designed to reduce extensive contractor labor.
