One last note from me on this,
I do perimeter security and video surveillance work for several power
companies here in Florida. Glades Electric Co-Op. Florida Power and
Light, Southern Energy Corp, Vandola Power to name a few and not a one
of them simply throw them away. Many of them use this company
Florida Transformer offers free pick up and delivery and they are
located in North West Florida which is closer to Louisiana than to where
I live. Also I would think the EPA would prohibit just throwing them in
a dumpster. That's the way it is here anyway.
End of my comments on this but I did want to offer what I know.
