The conventional CRT monitors and some old technology LCDs contain hazardous contaminants such as lead, phosphorous or beryllium which if not properly discarded, are toxic to the environment and contribute to ecological degradation. CRT Monitors contain many dangerous materials like phosphorous, cadmium and mercury sheathed within the Cathode Ray Tube. When the CRT is broken, all the toxic materials go airborne and cause potential health hazards.
According to the EPA, over 400,000 tons of monitors and LCDs are trashed away each year by individuals and companies. Moreover, the average life of a monitor or LCD is 3-4 years after which they are either discarded and ultimately end in landfills. Some of these also include items that are of reusable condition and can be recycled to save valuable material.
