If you are not using the ballast, what do you modify to use this?
How does it work?

I've been gradually replacing the T8 fixtures in my shop.  The previous
owner installed 12 two tube fixtures, so I've only be putting on LED tube in
each fixture as I remove the ballasts and make the update.  I've installed 8
so far and in each case the one LED is as bright, if not brighter than the
two old (maybe 10 years) T8 fluorescent tubes.  The brand I have been using
is below, I bought a couple last year for $23, then $21, now I see they are
down to $16.  Has anyone found a better option?

Also, does anyone know where I can properly dispose of the fluorescent
tubes?  My township will take them on hazardous waste day, but they only do
that twice a year and I was out of town for the last one.  Home Deport/
