3. More Separating
Not all metals are removed by the magnet. Aluminum, copper, and other metals are easily recyclable, so they get separated for further use. Everything from glass to plastic is separated through methods like water and manual separation.
This process is used for most electronics, but CRT TV recycling is more complicated and uses a different process for safe recycling. While the fee may be higher, that’s because there is a higher concentration of toxic materials like lead. It takes more work to extract those materials, which may be recycled into more TVs, but it’s more than worth it. If they’re not removed safely, lead, barium, and other dangerous substances bleed into the environment.
