Some of the stuff, like CRTs, has some pretty nasty stuff in it, though. Then again, there's a lot of toxic stuff involved in the ore mining process too.

So yeah, like shawn said, given the enormous energy we expend and complicated processes we employ to extract ore and other resources from the ground, you'd think we could figure out how to efficiently (and even profitably) gather materials from already concentrated pieces like the ones in those pictures.
