Cathode Ray Tube Prohibition

As of July 1, 2006, cathode-ray tube (CRT) containing devices cannot be placed in the garbage. 

 
What is a CRTcontaining device?  CRTs are found in video display devices such as televisions and computer monitors.
 
How do I get rid of a CRT containing device?  You must recycle your unwanted CRTs.  The Morrison County Solid Waste Management Facility (MC SWMF) aka the "Landfill" accepts electronics year-round and is locally the most suitable place to be recycled.
