Recycling 75 CRT monitors

monitor recycling

Last week we recycled 75 CRT monitors that were hanging out in our pole barn and IT basement, thanks to Recycling Jackson.

We recently upgraded most of our workstation monitors to flat-screen LCDs, which use less power and take up less space (both on desks and in the recycling bin), and use less materials to make than the heavy, glass-screen CRTs. But upgrading all those monitors meant we had a bunch of old ones hanging around.

Thankfully Recycling Jackson helps local organizations and individuals recycling electronic waste (e-waste) like ours. President Steve Noble (above) met us at their drop-off site on Brown St. in Jackson, behind Home Depot, to help us with our e-waste. There’s no telling how much all those monitors weigh, but it took a lot of gloved hands to get them in the recycling boxes.

American 1’s IT department also recycled some old fax machines and computer workstations, with more on the way.
