    How Paper is Recycled

    Windows do not need to be removed from envelopes before recycling. Most window envelopes are made of water-soluble paper fibre instead of plastic. Sticky notes (i.e. Post-it) are also recycled as mixed paper.

    After paper has been picked up for recycling, it is shipped to mills to be mixed with virgin fibre to produce new paper or cardboard.

    How Televeisiions are Recycled

    Here is the process for correctly stripping down and recycling a CRT television or monitor at the recycling facility:

    • First, a worker hand dismantles each television or monitor, separating out the different components.
    • The plastic, wood and copper coil found on the back of the CRT can be sold on the commodities market and turned into new products.
    • The circuit boards go to specialized recyclers that reclaim the gold, platinum and other precious metals.
    • The CRT itself is made up of three parts: the panel (the glass on the front), the funnel (the part behind the glass that narrows to a point) and the frit line, which attaches the two pieces together.
    • The three pieces are carefully separated for recycling.
    • The panel is coated in phosphorous, which must be removed and destroyed as hazardous waste.
    • Once the phosphorous is removed, the panel glass can be used as material in the manufacturing of new televisions.
    • The glass in the funnel can also be reused, mostly in slim-fit CRT TV’s which are now popular in South America and Asia.

    Newer television models create different recycling challenges. Many contain mercury and the screens cannot be reused in new televisions.
