Computer Monitors

 

The United States generates more E-Waste than any other nation. Each used computer monitor and television screen—can release 3-8 pounds of lead, plus mercury, cadmium, and phosphorous, which cause knownhealtth risks. EPA estimates that discarded CRTs (monitors and televisions) contribute at least 40% of the known lead in U.S. landfills. . About one-third of all waste electrical and electronic equipment is from CRTs, yet they represent as much as 80% of the toxic metals in discarded electronics.

Though, most computer monitor CRTs are manufactured in Asia, two Oregon companies manufacture CRT equipment. More than 300,000 monitors are shipped to Oregon consumers each year. In Oregon, the stockpile of CRT monitors—those still within their expected lifespan—could range from 1,865,000 to 2,099,000 units. Using data available from DEQ’s waste composition studies and other sources, it is estimated that 5,000 to 8,000 tons of monitors are disposed in Oregon annually.
