Description of Services:The facility only accepts various electronic items (articles, or manufactured items, only). Items can be either hazardous or non-hazardous per EU regulations, based on metals content. Entire Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) monitors accepted are considered hazardous waste due to lead content. Other items may be hazardous due to lead or other metal content. Most other electronic items are considered non-hazardous, however. Any mixture of components with hazardous components mixed in is considered wholly hazardous. Mercury accepted is in articles such as fluorescent tubes and switches only. These items are not disassembled onsite, but are consolidated for shipment to offsite processors.

The facility process involves simple manual disassembly of components. Depending on the type of equipment, a standard series of steps is employed (remove electric cable, open plastic case, remove equipment, disassemble). Steps for disassembling a computer monitor with CRT are: removal of cables, open plastic case, disassemble aluminum shell, remove plug to allow air to enter CRT, unscrew beam deviator yoke assembly, unscrew circuit board, remove CRT, remove electron gun (broken off with hammer), remove power supply board, and remove capacitors over 2.5 cm (1”) tall. Removed products are segregated and stored in cubic yard boxes or rolloff bins, for eventual shipment to offsite facilities. The CRT glass is not broken further.
