Old computer and monitor disposal is, as those burdened with obsolete technology have found, not as easy as simply putting the equipment out with the trash.
Due to the heavy metals used in monitors and circuit boards, most trash haulers won't take old computers or monitors. Computer monitor disposal, in particular, presents difficult issues: the cathode ray tube, or CRT, housed in older monitors and television sets contains lead, mercury, barium, and other toxic substances, all of which have been linked to serious health issues if they are released in a landfill. Therefore, computer monitor disposal involves far more than just taking your e-waste out to the curb.
Your local 1-800-GOT-JUNK? drivers will pick up your old PC and computer monitor and arrange safe disposal through the proper channels.
Cathode ray tubes, found in older computer monitors and televisions, contain lead, barium, mercury, cadmium, and phosphorous, all of which have been shown to be serious health risks should they be improperly handled. Further, approximately one-fifth of the weight of the glass in your computer monitor can be attributed to lead. If your computer monitor was put in a landfill, it would eventually be crushed by heavy equipment, releasing the hazardous materials both into the ground, where they will eventually leech into the water table, or as particles into the air. Airborne lead particles have been linked to severe respiratory problems and neuropsychological disorders. Accordingly, the Environmental Protection Agency and many US state governments have developed measures to keep e-waste out of our landfills. All of which makes computer monitor and PC disposal increasingly difficult – and the safe disposal of e-waste extremely important.
