Disposal of monitors, TFT monitors in particular.
We hardly ever see the old CRT monitors anymore. We mostly get TFT monitors for recycling. Only about 50% of a TFT monitor can be recycled (of its weight). That is due to the fact that the screen contains quite a few harmful substances such as mercury. The mercury is incorporated in the backlight.
The expenses of computer monitor recycling are higher than the raw materials that are gained from it. In fact, depreciated monitors have a negative value for recycling.
Currently, many defective TFT monitors are being exported from Europe to third world countries where the screen is used to build cheap television sets.
The dismantling and recycling of the rest of the monitor will often happen irresponsibly. That is why export of defective TFT-monitors is prohibited but not everyone abides by this rule, as it is a lucrative business.
Certification computer monitor-recycling – legislation for computer monitor-recycling.
To prevent export of computer waste, companies that collect and process computer waste are required by law to be certified according to the WEEELABEX-standard. Evidently, IT-Recycling carries this certification. On the WEEELABEX website you can see which companies have been awarded the certification. A WEEELABEX-certification gives you the guarantee that the recycling will take place according to the highest standards and within the legally defined boundaries.
