Computer Monitor Disposal
It may seem like your old computer monitors are useless junk that need to be hauled to the curb with your weekly trash. However, monitors contain valuable materials that can be salvaged and reused. Also, most states consider computer monitors to be hazardous waste, prohibiting removal by residential trash services.
Harmful chemicals and compounds found in computer monitors can leak into the soil and groundwater when monitors are left in landfills. Pollution of the air, ground, and water have serious effects on the environment and local life. It is important to choose a disposal service that will properly break down your computer monitors to ensure the protection of our environment and health.
Don’t let your monitors turn into toxic waste, use our trusted disposal experts to get rid of your monitors safely and legally.
How Does Computer Monitor Disposal Work?
Computer monitors fall into three main categories. Cathode ray tube (CRT) monitors use an electron gun to light the screen and create images. They have mostly been phased out because they are bulky and costly to repair. Liquid-crystal display (LCD) monitors use polarized light and liquid crystals to generate a picture. The monitors are typically compact and lightweight. Light-emitting diode (LED) monitors use advanced backlighting with flat panel or curved displays. They are very thin and more eco-friendly.
Each type of monitor requires different disposal methods to be safely dismantled. CRT and LCD monitors contain a significant amount of lead and mercury. These metals are extremely dangerous to human health and must be handled professionally.
With our disposal services, your monitors will be carefully broken down. Hazardous materials will be disposed of in compliance with the EPA and recyclable materials will be collected for reuse.
