    What is everyone doing without old/used grow equipment these days? Stuff builds up quick as things change. I used to use craigslist but here in Denver it is flooded with people dumping shit for pennies as the market keeps dropping.

    I was thinking I would just drop all my old magnetic ballasts at the recycler as well as plastic stuff like pots and irrigation. Does anyone know if I could get money for those that way?

    Maybe eBay for nicer things I guess.

    Copper in the magnetics makes them worth salvaging. But give it away. Put it on the curb. Make some poor fucker's day.

    I put my 4 magnetic ballast out and I heard the driver of the garbage truck exclaim "SWEET' as he loaded them up LOL

    I have bought many a used item from my local grow shop, maybe you have one that buys used equipment?
    I've also bought used stuff from ebay, so that works too.
    Just please, please don't sell used bulbs as new. Been down that road twice now.

    Sold some, gave some away. Used them to heat the garage and start my garden early. Keep one or 2 just in case, ya never know what could happen and all the sudden you find you could use one for something.

    What do else do you have that you're looking to get rid of? My setup is just about complete but I've got a friend on a tight budget that is looking for things.

    I know that lol he travels out you way twice a month to see his family. That's the only reason I ask. Yeah obviously he could find stuff here but I figured I would ask to help another member out and help him as well.

    I generally give it away if Its worth a shit still. If not I recycle it.

    I suppose I’ll give away most of it. Maybe keep the light controllers and Co2 gens.
    All the grow places here are full of stuff. They would probably buy those though.
