You should contact your waste authority where you live, or where your
company is, for proper disposal.  For me, I go to:
http://recycle.stopwaste.org/vendors.asp?material=CRTs
and select a drop off point.

They list different drop off points for items.  CRT's are getting to be a
problem in our lab.  We get charged $20 per CRT that needs to be disposed
of.

I also operate an environmental waste consulting company
(www.mngconsulting.com) if you or your work needs help with disposal of
hazardous waste, or materials.
