Be Green - Recycle the Screen
Similar to other electronic waste (e-waste), computer monitors must be disposed of responsibly to ensure that working parts can be re-used and toxic materials avoid the landfill. Computer monitor disposal in particular has some special considerations since these bulky old monitors have virtually no resale market and even the newest monitors contain toxic metals and chemicals…
Therefore, if your business has computer monitors or other e-waste to recycle, do not hesitate to call Junk King's team of professional junk removers to ensure eco-friendly disposal and recycling.
Problems with Disposing of Old Monitors
First, take into consideration that electronic products are made from valuable resources and materials, including metals, plastics, and glass, all of which require energy to mine and manufacture. Thus, when businesses recycle they contribute to:
- Conserving natural resources
- Avoid air and water pollution
- Avoid greenhouse gas emissions
Second, computer monitors are made of plastic, glass and metal. However, some also contain lead, from the color cathode ray tube (CRT), which creates the images on the screen. According to the EPA (United States Environmental Protection Agency) some electronics, including color CRTs computer monitors, test “hazardous” under federal law. Consequently these monitors are subject to special handling requirements under federal law.
If you have computer monitors sitting around, please don’t throw it in the trash! With this knowledge, it’s important to consider your options. Junk King's teams of professional junk removers may be one of your best options. We will pick up any number of monitors and other computer parts and responsibly dispose of it. You can book us online or call 1.888.888.5865.
Recycling of Monitors
Monitor recycling takes place at specialty facilities where workers carefully break down and sort the parts.
Old tube monitors must be broken down to safely dispose of lead and mercury. Metal and plastic components can then be recycled. In some cases, a local non-profit may be interested in giving the old monitor to someone who does not mind the old technology.
Newer LCD displays and other flat-screen monitors can often be repaired and re-purposed, or salvaged for parts to repair other monitors.
