A CRT Monitor is a computer monitor based around a device called a Cathode Ray Tube. The size and shape of the tube has determined the dimensions of computer monitors for many years, and has recently been upstaged by LCD monitors. Many people and companies are still using existing CRT monitors until they need to be replaced or upgraded.
CRT Monitors include several extremely hazardous materials encased within the Cathode Ray Tube. This glass tube contains a large quantity of lead, and coatings of phosphorous, cadmium, and mercury, in addition to several other heavy metals and toxins. The interior surface of the glass case is also coated with lead, which becomes airborne lead dust when the CRT is cracked, and all of the materials will leach into soil after breakage. This is the reason that municipal landfills do not accept CRT’s, since they are a danger to the workers involved in their breakdown and collection.
