==Cost For Recycling
, Collecting, and Transporting Semiconductors==The cost to transport to recycling center is estimated at 0.0172 dollars per kilogram. From our calculated total amount of world wide recovered amount of semiconductors is 43,885.29 Kg. So the total cost of transporting semiconductors is 0.0172*43,885.29 = $745.83. The cost to sort semiconductors is 0.140 dollars per Kg. The total cost to sort semiconductors = 0.140*43,885.29 = $6,143.94 . The cost to dismantle them is 0.315 dollars per Kg. Total cost to dismantle = 0.315*43885.29 = $13,823.9 . Cost to recycle monitor is 0. 110 dollars per Kg, so the total cost to recycle monitors is 0.110*43885.29 = $4,827.38 . <ref>"Economics of PC Recycling" displaysearch.com, 1 Jan. 2000.
