CRT's (cathode ray tubes) have been banned from landfills. Television sets and computer monitors contain CRT's which contain anywhere from 4-8 pounds of lead which is a hazardous waste that can cause serious health problems. For this reason CRT's must be disposed of properly. Computer monitors and televisions can be picked up from your home by calling Recology Vacaville Solano at 448-2945 to schedule a curbside pick-up. This program allows residents to dispose of one unit free of charge per year per household. Additional units can be picked up for a fee dependent on size. The pick-up program is only for pick-up of televisions and/or monitors. Other electronic devices can be disposed of properly by utilizing the e-waste drop-off program.
