I would rate it as theft.
Let me explain...
If the monitor is your own, personal kit, take it down to your local
tip It is domestic waste. The disposal is covered as part of your
Skips are hired by people that need to get rid of stuff that is not
domestic waste. I think that the going rate for a standard 5m^3 skip is
150 quid. 30 quid per m^3. If I guess that you can fit 8 monitors in a
cubic meter, then you just stole a couple of quid's worth of skip from them.
On top of this, the rate for the skip depends on the contents. Waste
electrical stuff is specialist waste, not for landfill. The poor skip
renter may get hit by a penalty for the contaminated waste.
