ACE Recycling can process most electronic equipment with little to no waste. However, with the fast pace of technological advancement, your items may not be explicitly listed on the “What Can Be Recycled?” list. We may still be able to process it, even if it is not listed. Send us a message with questions about specific equipment.

***We also take CRT TVs and Monitors. These are the old “big-back” TVs and monitors. However, there is a $20.00 fee. Are you a Phoenix or Maricopa County resident? Did you know they collect CRTs for FREE or just $13? Learn more here.

Why is there a fee for CRTs?

Cathode-ray tube (CRT) TVs or monitors contain lead and phosphors. These materials are toxic and require extra processing to ensure these toxins do not get into the environment. The special processing is why there is a charge associated with proper disposal. Charging for CRT disposal is an industry-standard.

CRTs & LEAD: The cathode-ray tube (CRT) is a vacuum tube. Breaking the vacuum seal, say by dropping the TV, there is potential for an implosion. The face of the TV or monitor contains thick lead or barium glass. This reduces the risk of it breaking. In the event it does crack, the lead or barium will block X-rays coming from the inside.

CRTs & Phosphors: Phosphors (substances that glow) coat the inside of the glass to increase the brightness and color of the picture. Toxic heavy metals get blended into the phosphors to create the colors you see on the TV.

To ensure proper recycling it costs money. Please be leery of a company that is not charging to take CRTs.

NOT ACCEPTED:

  • Alkaline batteries
  • Cans
  • Hazardous Waste Materials
  • Large Household Appliances
  • Light Bulbs

***On January 1st, 2021, our TV (and CRT monitor) Recycling fees will change to the following pricing: $25 each for CRT TVs and monitors, $20 each for projection TVs, and $5 each for flat-screens.  We will not charge for flat-screen monitors. For more detailed information about TV Recycling and the reason for the price changes, check out the TV Recycling and Disposal article from our blog. It helps you identify the type of TV/monitor you have, explains the state of TV recycling in the US, and explains the devastating consequences of improper disposal. As always, we appreciate your partnership in our effort to protect our environment.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
