There are two main industries that recycle CRT glass

There are two main industries that recycle CRT glass. First, there are the manufacturers making new CRT screens from recycled CRT glass. They often require the panel glass to be separated from the cone glass, so that they can proportion correctly the quantities of lead in the glass they produce. And then there is the lead-glass recycling industry. In this case,glass is sent to lead smelters, to be used as a fluxing agent in the smelting process. Then, smelters can recover the lead contained in the glass.
