Ballasts

(Last Updated: 8/23/2018)

Assume Ballasts are Hazardous Unless Marked "No PCBs"- Electrical ballasts are used for fluorescent lighting. Old ballasts (before 1980) may contain polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). PCBs are highly toxic and do not break down in the environment. Learn more about PCBs .
