*The use, storage, and disposal of PCB’s are regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under the Toxic Control Substance Act (TSCA) and 40 CFR, Part 761. Polychlorinated Biphenyls were widely used as a fire retardant and insulator in the manufacture of transformers and capacitors. This was due to their ability to withstand exceptionally high temperatures. Because of their classification as a human carcinogen, the EPA banned their use in 1979.

If a product was manufactured prior to 1979 please check the labels to ensure that it does not contain PCB’s. Common items manufactured prior to 1979 that may contain PCB’s include: microwaves, ballasts, transformers, capacitors, hydraulic systems, heat transfer systems, air compressors, pumps, gas transmission turbines, refrigerators, air conditioners, washing machines, televisions, voltage regulators, switches, electromagnets, circuit breakers, rectifiers, vacuum pumps and x-ray generating devices.

**We do accept CRT (Tube) TVs and monitors. However, these devices must be intact, they cannot be broken and the plastic back must be in place.
