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.
TBS provides a safe and secure outlet for CRT monitors, which will assure safe and responsible handling and disposal. TBS has trained personnel and proper facilities to carefully handle any quantity of CRT monitors in an environmentally safe and cost effective manner. Please contact us for a quote today!

TBS Industries is an industry leader in computer recycling services. We provide a comprehensive suite of services designed to fulfill the needs of our clients, regardless of the scale of their business. Computer recycling is a very broad term that describes a collection of related services provided by TBS. Our services begin with the collection of materials, either by pickup, eWaste box, or customer delivery. We immediately inventory the incoming materials, separating scrap from working or salvageable units, which are then moved into our processing stream.
Scrap computers are completely dismantled in our de-manufacturing process, which starts out by salvaging the useable components, and then separating the remainder into commodity streams, such as scrap steel, plastic, copper wire, etc. The separated material is then further refined to supply the needs of industry for new manufacturing. Working units are remarketed through a variety of channels, assuring the maximum return possible for our clients.
During the process of computer recycling, many computers will be processed which still include sensitive data on their hard disk drives. Based on our contracts, TBS will crush, shred, or fully data-wipe the hard drives, to the standards used by the US Department of Defense. This process includes a full “7-times” data wipe and overwrite, eliminating the possibility of data recovery.
TBS will issue a Certificate of Destruction for any equipment that is crushed or shredded, or a Certificate of Disposal for equipment that is slated for remarketing. This allows our clients to demonstrate a complete change of ownership, and will provide them with all the legal assurances that they have transferred title to the equipment. This certificate will help prevent future liabilities on equipment that is handled through TBS Industries.
TBS also provides an outlet for companies that are generators of scrap metals. Due to our vertically situated company, we are able to offer the highest prices in the industry on all classifications of scrap material. TBS will also provide third-party representation for companies that prefer to have their material shredded or refined, or we will purchase bulk material outright if you would prefer.
