Discarded TV goes to a local recycling centre or back to the shop

Next, the bulk of TVs, monitors and other screens is sent to a regional or national recycling facility with an FPD PRO® machine.

At this point, screens are considered a hazardous e-waste, as they contain components with toxic substances, i.e. mercury, liquid crystals.
