CRT Achievements

Organization(s) Massachusetts Dept. of Environmental Protection
Project Description In April 2000 MA became the first state in the nation to ban the disposal of cathode ray tubes (CRT). CRTs are the leaded glass picture tubes found inside televisions, computer monitors, and some video games. As of Spring 2001, 275 communities provide for collection of CRTs and/or consumer electronics. Through the CRT grant program, more than 1,850 tons of computers and TVs were recycled during the 2000 calendar year. Communities not participating in the program recycled an estimated additional 1,000 tons. This equates to more than 110,000 TVs and computers that would have been discarded.
