Why are companies charging for Cathode Rayon Tube (CRT) Televisions or Monitors to be recycled, and why is it so expensive, or tough to do?
If you still have a large, old tube type (and incredibly heavy) television or computer monitor in your business or home, chances are it’s a cathode ray tube (CRT). Before the rise of flat panel displays, CRT were widely used in televisions and computer monitors. While some CRT displays are still being used today, few CRTs are being produced as electronics manufacturers follow consumer and business demand for flat panel TV and monitor displays.
If you’ve purchased a television in the past five years, chances are it is a flat screen with a liquid crystal display (LCD) or plasma. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, many consumers/business are now purchasing their second or third flat screen television and facing a decision of what to do with the old sets.
- There are significant differences in the material that makes up LCD and plasma TVs which can make recycling them tricky but also significantly important. The most important difference is the substantially higher amount of glass in plasma TVs while LCD TVs contain more types and higher amounts of plastic.
