A Bunch of F40's

A Bunch of F40's

Click to view full size image

Here are a bunch of working F40T12's i found on the side of the road, it mostly consists of GE and Philips lamps with about 2 or 3 Sylvania lamps. The bulbs range from (i think) early 90's to late 2000's. I also found some older bulbs but i set those aside in a different pile.

Yep, these were all being thrown out, a lot of these lamps are brand new too.

Old lighting is, and will always be, the best lighting.

Probably the end result of relamping to LEDs. Those in that quantity is considered hazardous waste because of the Hg. The garbage man will not take them. Glad you saved those.

A lot of the newer fluorescents are TCLP compliant and can actually be disposed of in regular trash!

While that may be true, the city that was doing the curbside trash pickup does not allow fluorescent lamps, and people throwing out fluorescent lamps can face up to a 400$ fine (according to the laws listed last year) but due to the number of illegal dumpers (people who come in from outside the city to dump their trash), i don't think it can be enforced.

Nowadays they do that here because of the people illegally dumping stuff.

They have no problem taking fluorescent tubes in the trash here. Anything over 4ft I crush and put into a zip-lock bag and into the trash it goes. I definitely don't recommend crushing them and putting them into the recycling. Basically poisoning all the recyclables.

There's huge problems here with people recycling things that aren't supposed to be, like jeans, plastic wrap, large pieces of sheet metal, lumber, etc. Because of lack of funding here, if there were ANY items in the batch of recyclable goods that didn't belong, the whole truckload was refused and sent to the landfill because there's no way to sort through all that material. It ended up being such a big problem that they had to start sorting the material since the recycling center ended up sending more stuff to the dump than they were actually recycling! In Rhode Island, there's one major landfill, called the Rhode Island Resource Recovery Center, and it's the dump, recycling center, and Eco-Depot all rolled into one.

I don't think that kind of stuff is allowed here, but if you "accidentally" break a fluorescent lamp, then you can just toss it in the trash without a issue.

I used to see tubes sticking out of trash cans in my neighborhood all the time. Now it's mostly on top of the cans since we got the big cart style cans but they still seem to take them. A few months ago I even saw a fluorescent strip light with tubes still in it on top of someone's cans down the street!

Now, if someone had put this many out then it would be a definite problem!

Collect vintage incandescent and fluorescent fixtures. Also like HID lighting and streetlights.

Very nice score! Glad you saved them, somebody evidently did an LED conversion. Are they all cool white?

Yeah here they have those standardized city issues bins. Anything that doesnt fit must be placed in purple trash bags that cost like 10 bucks each from the city and are single use. The idea is people using more trash will pay more as will people disposing of bulky items.

We've had the county issued carts for about two years now. There's a blue one for trash and a green/yellow one for recycling. When we just used regular trash cans, they picked up twice a week, but now they come once a week. They make one trip for the trash and another for the recycle. We don't have any extra bags here, if it doesn't fit in the can, they won't take it. Except for once a month I believe they pick up larger items and another time the yard debris. We kept our old small rolling cans for collecting the yard debris like branches or clippings.

I really like the rolling carts because they are much more stable and roll easily.

In the city limits they've had them for years, but they don't pick up recycle there. Where my grandparents live, they have the carts too, but they pick up recycling in a plastic box there.

Where I just moved out of in Fairbanks, AK, we had the roll cans inside the city limits where I was, but everywhere else you took your own trash to the transfer sites. Inside the city limits you were supposed to take bulkier stuff, such as construction debris, directly to the landfill, but we sure as heck took it to the transfer sites outside the city limits.

They're a mix of warm white, cool white, and daylight. They were all acquired over a span of around 2 weeks and from multiple houses.

One thing i did not specify in this post is the trash pickup i'm talking about is one that's only done once a year where people throw stuff out on the side of the road. For the rest of the year, everyone gets three bins to toss stuff in to be taken out (Trash, Recyclables, and Plant/tree parts), however, these do not let people toss stuff out like E-waste or some bulkier items.

Here we used to have certain areas were there were trailers to put different recyclables, before they started giving the wheeled carts. We do have I think twice a year where hazardous and electronic waste is accepted at the landfill. But I still see old televisions put at the street once in a while.

Interesting about the once a year thing, sounds like an opportunity to find some good stuff if one were to go on a neighbourhood cruz that day looking for free stuff.

My city you are permitted two garbage bags / cans per week up to a certain size, no more that 40lb / 18kg and must be black or green bags. Additional bag tags can be purchased if you must have more than 2 bags

Everyone is given a green cart bin for compostables which goes out with the trash. Recycling is unlimited but must be sorted properly. Yards trimmings must be in paper bags and no more than the weight limit.

Non hazardous items can be placed out like furniture/ metal parts etc, if they're big the crew leaves a tag saying a truck will return for it. Electronics and other goods like wood waste will get an oops sticker. Lightbulbs are usually taken no problem as Ive seen those put out in trash sticking out of a can

1/4 of my lighting finds are from the curb i City
of San Antonio bulky item pick ups. they do pick up fluorescent items. fencing, scrap metals. anyway i go out every 6 months.
to go junking in the hoods for two months.
i have been getting older F40CWs this way .
in few more years these lamps will be hard to
come by.

No LED gadgets, spins too slowly.  Gotta  love preheat and MV. let the lights keep my meter spinning.
