#1 - Dispose

OCRRA’s Rock Cut Road Drop-Off Site will accept up to 25 non-PCB ballasts; they must be separated from other items.

If you are a resident with a few non-PCB ballasts (they are typically labeled as such), you can also put them in your curbside trash, but ONLY if they are NON-PCB containing.

If ballasts are believed to contain PCBs, make a drop-off appointment through OCRRA’s Household Toxics Program for Onondaga County residents. A limit of 20 ballasts containing PCB may be dropped off per appointment.

Not sure if your ballast contains PCB? The Environmental Protection Agency offers guidance.
