Cathode Ray Tubes
cathode ray tubes The cathode ray tube (CRT) is the glass video display unit found in color televisions and computer monitors. The CRTs contain lead in the tube, neck and the enclosed glass seal, which may pose a hazard to human health or the environment when improperly managed or disposed of. Another environmental issue is the loss of landfill volume due to CRTs large size compared to other Universal wastes. For these reasons, it is important to properly manage CRTs and bring them to designated locations designed for proper recycling, reuse, or disposal.
