  • Tube TV Disposal: How Can You Dispose of and Recycle Your CRT TV?

    Posted by Webtech on June 6, 2022 at 10:51 am

    The average household in the United States today actively uses at least two televisions. But with the rise of the modern flat-panel television comes the demise of the old cathode ray tube (CRT) ones — those fat, bulging boxes that have since found a permanent home in basements and attics.

    These CRT TVs that still linger in households present a unique challenge to electronics recyclers everywhere since these televisions are packed full of harmful substances.

    The average CRT contains about 6 pounds of lead, along with many other toxic materials. As you can see, the environmental consequences of improper tube TV disposal are significant.
