Recycling Computers, Computer Monitors & Televisions

Computer monitors and televisions contain Cathode Ray Tubes (CRTs). The State of California has determined that CRTs are now a hazardous waste and cannot be disposed of in landfills. CRTs contain high quantities of lead and other heavy metals, which can cause poisoning in individuals and can be especially harmful to young children.

Below is a partial listing of local companies that will accept CRTs and other electronic and computer-related products from businesses. For a complete list, visit CalRecycle.
