Electronic Waste Recycling

Updated July 30, 2010

Cathode Ray Tubes (CRTs) are the main component in a television or computer monitor's display unit and may contain up to several pounds of lead, a toxic substance. Electronic equipment also contains a large amount of metals and plastics that are recyclable.

MIT’s Recycling Program manages the collection and recycling of these items, big and small. We encourage you to refer to the Facilities recycling website for specific information on what can be recycled and how. The ‘What Can Be Recycled’ page should answer all of your questions about recycling TechnoCycle and E-Waste.
