Description: Color computer monitors containing cathode ray tubes (CRTs) are often RCRA hazardous wastes. There is no data suggesting processing units are hazardous wastes. Color monitors may contain high amounts of lead in CRTs and be characteristic wastes. Other hazardous constituents such as mercury, cadmium, and arsenic are sometimes present in CRT glass in low concentrations. Generators of solid waste CRTs and other computer equipment are required to make hazardous waste determiations for these materials by testing them or applying their knowledge.
