The most interesting part is where they cut open the CRT. You will see the mask and the phosphor layer that they vaccuum out of them....

Looks like an expensive process...

But waste is money nowadays. What is in there?
1 kilo of copper?

indeed, the best place to mine for gold is in a pile of mobile phones 150g per ton, and the technology is developed for harvesting platinum from the roads because it is such a good source, pretty nuts
