Indeed so. I have just been emailing with a fellow who is a consultant to
the EPA and had contacted me for feedback as to what I do with defective
CRTs. He told me that Massachusetts has banned CRTs from landfills within
their state. Reason basically is the volume they take up. MA has a new law
promulgated which prohibits creation of new landfills so you can imagine
the remaining ones are a rather limited resource. (So watch out Allison and
Megan! :)

What do the rest of you folks do to get shed of dud CRTs? I suppose the big
scrappers handle recycling of the CRT glass through an outfit specifically
geared toward CRT recycling. I found there are at least 16 outfits
worldwide who either broker or actually recycle CRT glass and CRT byproducts.
