CRT is an abbreviation for cathode ray tube and is one of the earliest vacuum tube technologies used to convert an electrical signal into moving images (e.g. a television).
Provided your old CRT monitors and TVs are held at business premises Newtech Recycling will collect them for disposal.
We use ‘State of the Art’ CRT recycling equipment manufactured by CRT Heaven Ltd. Our CRT disposal hardware separates the toxic, leaded glass for more efficient recycling.
CRT screens are filled with deadly toxins, including a large amount of lead which is locked on the glass and extremely tricky to recycle, but not totally impossible.
The laws on CRT disposal are very clear, they cannot be thrown out with the regular garbage, your business has to have them properly recycled by a CRT recycler.
A cathode ray tube (CRT) is a specialized vacuum tube in which images are produced when an electron beam strikes a phosphorescent surface. The CRT monitor was most commonly used with desktop computer displays until the invention of flat screens. The CRT PC display is similar to the "picture tube" in a TV receiver.
CRT monitors use a lead shield to block most X-ray emissions. However, the problem with lead is that just a very small amount of it can cause lead poisoning, so there is a large effort to keep lead out of landfills and incinerators. Thankfully here in the United States, Newtech Recycling Inc runs a program to recycle CRTs and television sets. In doing so, we help keep lead from CRT computer screens and televisions out of landfill sites and out of our food and water supply.
Old waste CRT displays and monitors aren’t classified as regular trash, in fact, a junk CRT computer monitor or TV isn’t really classified as garbage either. Broken or unwanted CRTs are actually classified as toxic waste, solid toxic waste to be more precise. Therefore, old TV sets and computer monitors don’t go into the dumpster along with the rest of your household trash.
CRT garbage needs to be collected by, or taken to, a State authorized e-waste recycler. Newtech Recycling Inc. is a State authorized R2 and EPA registered e-waste recycler that offers both the collection and recycling of your garbage CRT monitors and TV sets. We only collect from businesses and not from households. However, if you are a resident with an old TV, we would recommend you either create a company e-waste event at your workplace or arrange to bring it to us.
The interior of a CRT is a vacuum. This makes handling an intact CRT potentially dangerous. There is a risk of breaking the tube and causing a violent implosion that can hurl shards of glass at great velocity. As a matter of safety, Newtech Recycling uses specialized equipment to safely manage the separation of the tube.
We use this equipment to separate the tube into two pieces, the ‘face’ which is full of toxic lead and the ‘rear’ which houses the electron gun and projection apparatus. It is easy to recycle the rear of the CRT as it consists of pure glass, however, the front of the tube (the screen) is a lot harder to manage as the glass is permeated with lead. However, once the CRT has been safely separated by our CRT disassembling machine (which is aptly named CRT Heaven) the process of recycling can begin.
If you are interested in how much it costs to collect and recycle computer CRT monitors and screens you will be pleasantly surprised. Due to advances in CRT recycling technology, we can manage the process of separating the glass from the lead efficiently and safely. This equates to reasonable recycling prices for our customers.
The separated leaded glass is sent off to a massive electrically powered furnace, where it is melted into a molten liquid. The lead is heavier than the molten glass and it sinks to the bottom. This allows the lead and the glass to be drained off separately. Obviously, it costs a lot of money to heat this enormous furnace but the lead and glass recovered can be resold which helps keep the costs of recycling CRTs lower than they have ever been.
Many electronic devices contain toxic substances such as lead, mercury, beryllium, and cadmium, and recycling them is a difficult but worthwhile process. To protect our environment from toxic waste resulting from the incorrect disposal of CRT monitors and televisions, it has now recommended to process these items through a certified e-waste recycler.
The good news is, we at Newtech Recycling run a facility and collection service that is fully authorised to pick-up and dispose of used CRT monitors. As an R2 and State authorised CRT e-waste recycler we are able to collect and manage the disposal of CRT computer monitors from New Jersey, New York (including NYC and Long Island), Southern Connecticut and parts of Eastern Pennsylvania. To arrange for the collection CRT waste or for more information or help, please call: 732-564-3110 8am to 4pm Monday to Friday EST.
