Computer monitors and terminals are classified as toxic waste, specifically for their phosphor, mercury, and lead content. The Land Ban Act of 1994 stipulates that the generators of electronic waste dispose of this waste in an environmentally compliant manner. The specific regulations set forth in this act can be found in Code of Federal Regulations (CRF), title 40, parts 260-279.
