Your local government might have a hazardos waste recycling place. Here in Alasaka monitors/tv's are considered hazardous and when taken to the local landfill it has to be segregated and placed into a recycle container. I charge extra for this kind of disposal.

Note that materials are not the only hazard!  The high-vacuum inside makes these things very dangerous in a disposal situation also.  The vacuum should be relieved by an experienced technician prior to disposal.
