CRT Monitors and Televisions Recycling and Disposition

A cathode ray tube (CRT) is the glass video display component of an electronic device (usually a television or computer monitor). Some all-in-one computers, like the G3 iMacs also used CRTs. Comprenew refurbishes and recycles CRT computer monitors, televisions and other electronic devices, prioritizing refurbishment over recycling whenever possible.

If reuse, repair or refurbishment is not a practical option, CRTs can be recycled. Recycled CRTs are disassembled so recoverable components can be routed into streams of commodities that can be reused or converted into raw materials again.

CRT monitors and televisions contain lead, which is located in the funnel glass. Lead is just one of the hazardous waste components in CRT displays.

CRTs and CRT glass were once easily recycled into new CRTs. However, today, the demand for new CRTs has largely vanished in favor of new flat-screen monitors and televisions.

If you have old or unwanted CRT monitors and televisions. Comprenew wants to help. We make it easy to do the right thing. If you have one or several CRTs to be recycled, take them to one of our drop-off locations.

CRT monitors, displays, and televisions weigh a lot—and they’re often bulky and awkward to cary or get in a vehicle. Be careful when attempting to move them. No worries, though. Comprenew can come get them. Schedule a pick-up today.

Comprenew also offers IT Asset Disposition (ITAD) through its Secure Asset Technology Disposition services.
