Why recycle computer monitors?
Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) monitors are the most toxic to our environment. Each monitor contains large amounts of lead, along with phosphorous, cadmium, and mercury. Disposal can be quite hazardous if one of the glass tubes breaks and ejects those toxins into the air.
Flat screen monitors (e.g., LCD) offer improvements, but they also can be dangerous to the environment. For example, LCD monitors manufactured before 2009 contain mercury. Plus, recycling PC monitors helps to conserve natural resources and energy, and reduce pollution resulting from the extraction and processing of raw materials from the earth.

Who is PCD?
PC Disposal is part of a family of technology businesses started in 1989. Kory Bostwick founded PC Disposal in 1998 because he was concerned that there were few environmentally-friendly options for companies who wanted to dispose of the toxic glut of obsolete computers that were filling offices – and ultimately – landfills.
With this idea in mind, PC Disposal has grown into one of the largest computer disposal firms in the industry. We've now expanded to provide recycling services for all types of electronic waste. In addition to home consumers, our clients include companies of all sizes throughout the United States and Canada, and many of our clients are Fortune 500 companies and U.S. government agencies.
