Frequent Questions

How does the cathode ray tube (CRT) rule encourage electronics recycling?

This rule acknowledges current collection practices for used cathode ray tubes (CRTs) and streamlines RCRA management requirements for broken CRTs and processed CRT glass sent for recycling. CRTs represent a large volume of the electronics wastestream and can be difficult to recycle. Making CRT recycling easier could also facilitate recycling of the entire electronics wastestream. We estimate that 57 million computers and televisions are sold in the United States annually.
