Ballasts

What Are Ballasts?

Ballasts are found in industrial lighting fixtures. Although we don’t suggest opening them to get the copper out of it’s container, you can still get good pricing for ballasts by using the iScrap App. The iScrap App can find scrap metal yards near you as well as prices for ballasts. Call multiple yards near you to get the best ballast pricing.

Doing A Teardown of Lights? Scrap Them!

If you have a large amount of ballasts from a remodel or construction job that you need to scrap but do not have the right kind of transportation to bring them to your local yard, the iScrap App can help you schedule a pick up with the yard that you choose. If you are bringing a large load into the yard be sure to ask for the current Ballasts Scrap Prices from the local scrap yards.

Types of Ballasts

There are different types of ballasts and it is important to know how to sell them to make the most money for your time. One thing is always to have the wires cut off of the ballasts…this will be a little time consuming, but it will certainly help you to maximize your return. Another important thing is to know if you have copper or aluminum ballasts. This is a very big difference and could be the make it our break it for time spent sorting and separating your scrap metals.
