E-Waste Conclusion

“We find that the benefits of avoiding the health effects associated with CRT disposal appear far outweighed by the costs for a wide range of policy options.

For the stock of monitors disposed of in the United States in 1998, we find that policies restricting or banning some disposal options would increase disposal costs from about $1 per monitor to between $3 and $20 per monitor.

Policies to promote a modest amount of recycling of monitor parts can be less expensive.  In all cases, however, the costs of the policies exceed the value of the avoided health effects of CRT disposal”.
