1. A cathode ray tube (CRT) is the glass video display component of an electronic device, usually a computer or television monitor. CRT funnel glass generally contains high enough concentrations of lead that the glass is regulated as hazardous waste when disposed. CRTs and CRT glass were once easily recycled into new CRTs, however, the demand for new CRTs has collapsed in favor of new flat panel technologies. Because of rising costs, negative economic incentives and shifts in CRT glass markets, some CRT processors and recyclers are choosing to store the glass indefinitely rather than send it for recycling or disposal, which increases the risk of mismanagement and/or abandonment of CRTs. In 2006, EPA amended its regulations to streamline management requirements for recycling of used CRTs and glass removed from CRTs. The amendments excluded these materials from the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act definition of solid waste, if certain conditions are met (see title 40 of the Code of...

Federal Legislation – Electronics TakeBack Coalition

21.086.4173 hours ago

1. Wastes, including electronic waste, are subject to the federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). Some electronic wastes – like cathode ray tube (CRT) TVs and monitors are classified as hazardous waste in the U.S. because of the hazardous materials inside. But if certain electronic wastes (CRTs, whole used circuit boards, shredded circuit boards) are sent for recycling, EPA rules sometimes exempt these from their definition of hazardous waste. Because of the federal exemptions, it’s legal to export almost all electronic waste from the U.S. to developing countries. RCRA says you can’t sent hazardous waste to developing countries without their consent, and the EPA has a “prior informed consent” process for this purpose. But because the EPA has enacted rules that exempt these various kinds of e-waste from the definition of hazardous waste, the export rules no longer apply to these products if they are being exported “for recycling.” The only law that currently restricts e-w...
