For example, the glass in a screen alone can contain an average of 1kg of lead per CRT. We work closely with a company in Kent which is a world leader in the recycling of CRT technology. They were the first company in the world to design a process for removing the lead from glass.
Flat screen tvs and monitors also contain hazardous material including mercury and therefore need to be disposed of correctly. These are also dealt with by the same company in Kent who dismantle each unit to remove the mercury tube.
Each process involves a secure collection, using We Collect vetted staff, in our own satellite tracked vehicles. All TV and Monitor collections are accompanied by Hazardous Waste paperwork, and consigned to our recycling facility. This allows for a paper trail and audit compliant recycling service for all items that we recycle. It details the number and Hazardous components of the material.
