Monitor recycling (TFT-monitors)
The old CRT – became rare these days, we hardly see them in our recycling business. These days we see more and more TFT monitors that we collect for recycling. Approximately only half of the materials in a TFT monitors can be recovered in the recycling proces. Furthermore a TFT monitor contains hazardious substances such mercury that is used for the backlight.
Many defective TFT monitors are currently being exported from Europe to Third World countries. The screens are used there to build inexpensive television sets. The disassembly and recycling of the rest of the monitor is then done in an irresponsible manner and often by children. Therefore, the export of defective TFT monitors is prohibited. Unfortunately, not everyone complies with these regulations and there is a lot of illegal export of depreciated TFT monitors.
Certification and legislation for monitor recycling
To prevent the illegal export of computer waste, companies involved in the collection and processing of computer waste are obliged to certify themselves according to the WEEELABEX standard. IT recycling naturally has this certification. You can see which companies have this certification on the WEEELABEX website. A WEEELABEX certification offers you the guarantee that the recycling proceeds to the highest standard and within legal frameworks.
