Kentucky Plans Cleanup of Millions of Pounds of CRT Glass
Millions of pounds of leaded cathode ray tubes (CRT) glass in Kentucky will be treated with an additive in an effort to allow for more cost-efficient disposal of problematic material.
E-Scrap News reports that the additive will be used for a nearly $3 million glass cleanup left behind from now-closed processor Global Environmental Services (GES). According to the report, GES shuttered in late 2015, leaving millions of pounds of CRT glass at its three Kentucky locations: Georgetown, Cynthiana and Winchester.
Since then, attention has been turned to planning the cleanup of 26 million pounds stored inside the Cynthiana and Winchester facilities. According to the report, about 8 million pounds of TVs are stored on pallets in Winchester, and about 18 million pounds of ground glass, along with displays in various stages of processing, are stored inside the Cynthiana warehouse.
