WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR OLD CRT type TELEVISIONS AND COMPUTER MONITORS
Recycling the old CRT type televisions and monitors has become cost prohibitive due to limited to no markets for the materials they contain. These devices are now going to the lined landfill. If a screen is 13 inches or less it may be placed in your trash cart so long as it does not overfill the container. CRT's are typically the old boxy style versus a thin flat screen. Knock on the front panel, if its glass then it's most likely a CRT. Can you hang it on a wall? If so, then it's probably a flat screen that can be recycled.
Please contact the Solid Waste Division at (307)721-5279 if you have any questions regarding e-waste disposal.
