How to dispose of CRTs?
stephenb 1 year ago
We still had a few CRTs that we just replaced with flat screen LCD monitors , and I thought that I would just store them away for backups, since they all still work (and I wouldn't have to do anything else with them, to be honest). Well, apparently the last guy who did this had the same thought, because I found dozens and dozens of old CRTs stored away. Instead of "sit and forget", I actually need to deal with this. You can't just toss them in the trash anymore (not that you ever should have), and the local recyclers say they don't want them. I can pay $15 per unit for disposal, but I'll have to make a disbursement request, justify it, wait, etc. Are there any better options. What do you do with old CRTs?
