On Earth Day, Friday, April 22, Comprenew was downtown Grand Rapids along Monroe Center collecting CRTs for certified recycling. CRTs are old-style (box shaped) TVs and computer monitors. Each CRT contains five to ten pounds of lead. Thanks to residents and area businesses, Comprenew collected over 2,500 electronic devices! Thank you Grand Rapids for “Getting the Lead Out!”

Comprenew accepts almost anything with a battery or cord for certified recycling. For more information on year-round electronic device drop-off locations, please click here.
