What is the proper method for disposal of LCD monitors?

Asked by Elumas (3170points) July 29th, 2010

Yes, I did try googling it, thank you. We have three broken LCDs where I work and we need to obviously get rid of them. I just want to keep mother nature In mind.

Best Buy/etc. tend to have recycling programs. Sometimes you get gift cards and stuff for it.Sometimes not.

I would try your city or county. I would try ‘electronics recycling’ in Google.

One place I lived had 2 or 3 days a year when you could drop off electronics (and paint, oil, pesticides,etc) at county sites. Other places have permanent centers.

For example, Los Angeles County has scheduled events and the city of Los Angeles has permanent centers.

Those We buy junk places…. I swear you might even get my money out of it.

The material they use to make LCDs, rare earth.

If that doesn’t work, you might try blowing it up. That’d be fun.

Ever since I visited an unmonitored hehe shooting range and found a nearby dumpster full of holed computer hardware, it has been my ambition to use my old gear – once it has finally breathed its last – for target practice.
