  • All materials must be in boxes to prevent spillage.
  • Customers should use original packages or cardboard boxes for intact bulbs and ballasts.
  • Please use heavy plastic bags for broken lamps.

Special note for ballasts: Any ballast that does not have the phrase ‘no PCBs’ will be charged at the PCB ballast rate. There is a minimum ballast charge of $40 for any PCB containing ballasts.
