If they contain PCB's you don't want them.   A lot of bad legal implications
if the EPA finds out you have them (you pay to have them disposed of by the
EPA --- like $500 per xmfr).

PCB is a chemical handle for poly-chlorinated-biphenyl.  They attach to fat
cells in your body and are strong known carcinogens.

Many power companies would give them away free --- if they could, but you
definitely don't want them.
