Have you ever considered why we see electronic garbage laying around our fair county on the side of the road? 40 cents a pound is in many cases the amount we paid to buy the item in the first place!. If you are truly recycling electronics as you claim, there should be a revenue stream created by the precious metals contained within the waste. You have created a situation where we cant afford to throw away or recycle many Items. I have an old flat screen tV that I would love to throw away but it is well over 250lbs and at 40c a pound I would be looking at at least 100.00 just to throw one Item away! Think about it!
