CRT glass processor hit with $120,000 fine

CRT glass processor hit with $120,000 fine

March 20, 2014

An Arizona plant operated by Pennsylvania-based Dlubak Glass has been hit with a $120,000 fine for improper storage and recycling of CRTs.

During a routine inspection of the company's Yuma, Arizona plant, Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) officials discovered broken CRT glass "throughout the five-acre facility," an ADEQ press release states. Soil stains were also detected, with lead levels "as much as 75 times more than the maximum federal and state exceedance level of five milligrams per liter."

In court, the company agreed to pay the $120,000 fine and store all glass indoors in clearly marked containers. Soil cleanup has also been performed.

Yuma is also the site of a now-notorious CRT abandonment by Dow Management in 2013. Approximately 3,000 tons of glass were left behind by Dow and a "voluntary" cleanup process has been undertaken by the company's former suppliers, ADEQ told E-Scrap News.

R2 certification hits milestone

R2 certification hits milestone

By Editorial Staff, E-Scrap News

Feb. 14, 2014

More than 500 e-scrap recycling facilities around the world are now certified to the R2 standard.

R2 Solutions, the nonprofit organization responsible for developing and administering the standard, announced the news Feb. 7 in a press release. A total of 508 facilities across 14 countries are currently certified and "more are in the pipeline," the release states.

Facilities will have to update their certification this year to meet the recently introduced R2:2013 standard. A 58-page guidance document was released in November to aid firms conform to the changes, which include a requirement for certified facilities to have an environmental health and safety management system in place.

The R2 standard was founded in 2008.
