Cleaning Up E-waste
CRTs and other electronic equipment can contain high levels of leachable lead and other heavy metals, including mercury and cadmium, as well as phosphorus and PCBs. Millions of dollars are lost each year by not recycling electronic and computer components. 20% of electronic equipment can be reused and 80% can be properly recycled. It takes several thousand years for a monitor to decompose in a landfill.
More than 8% of landfill content is hazardous and requires proper management. Components such as batteries and mercury switches can be recycled. State and Federal regulatory agencies have begun enforcing the "Land Ban" on CRTs. Regulatory trends are leaning toward proper management of all electronic scrap.
