For the environmentally conscious, the large amounts of toxic materials contained within a monitor’s cathode ray tube (CRT) still present a very serious problem. Lead and phosphorous are among the many toxic elements within CRTs. Lead is the most prevalent toxic material, and many CRTs have been shown to leach this lead content into landfills.
Generally, we are able to recycle approximately 98.5% of the material that we accept. Material received daily ranges anywhere from a few thousand pounds to as much as 175 tons in one day. Although CRT’s and CRT related materials are the primary materials recycled, we also have federally certified technicians to recycle Freon related products such as refrigerators, air conditioners.
Our Class C recycling permits us to accept these items for recycling and/or disposal. We remove the cathode ray tube (CRT) and send glass for glass-to-glass recycling. Metals and plastics are also separated and sent for proper recycling.
We take in all CPU’s, printers, scanners, mice and misc. electronic scrap for FREE!* (* There may be a charge for any electronic items that contain a CRT). Some of these items can be refurbished and/or resold. This helps to reduce the cost of your CRT disposal and helps the environment at the same time!
