How are LCD Monitors Recycled?
When a Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) monitor is first received, an evaluation is performed to determine whether it should be repaired or recycled. If deemed repairable, it will be reconditioned and eventually enter the secondary market. If the unit is deemed un-repairable, it is dismantled and all usable parts are harvested. The parts too damaged to be used for repairs, such as broken plastic or severely damaged components, are recycled.
We do not accept CRT Monitors without a $40 per monitor fee.
The cathode-ray tube (CRT) is a vacuum tube that contains one or more electron guns and a phosphorescent screen, and is used to display images. It modulates, accelerates, and deflects electron beam onto the screen to create the images. CRT monitors are the big old heavy monitors. While most “Scrappers” love these old monsters, here at Bluegrass Recycle we can not shred them due to their lead content. A $40 pickup fee will be imposed for picking them up and shipping them to an appropriate vendor for recycling.
