Offcourse you can make a good use of it if they are working fine. But make sure that they are working. You can use the capacitors in other circuits that you build. Ballast can be used to make FM transmitters or the wire in ballast can be used.

Starters have been (ab)used to make incandescent light bulbs flicker for mock-gaslight effects. Websearch for "FlickerPilot" then look just a bit further down that page.
