Nobody's made it a moral issue; it's a cost and convenience issue. Putting it into conventional landfills leads to future liability issues that will be borne by the taxpayers. There are expenses related to removing hazardous waste from the normal disposal stream, so the obvious solution is to simply exclude it from that stream. But, as you noted, if you don't give people _convenient_ alternatives, they'll find another way to get rid of it. So sure, tell people it's not allowed to throw that stuff in their regular trash, but you also must provide a means to conveniently get rid of that stuff, or it will end up on the wayside. Half measures never succeed.

I've often written that today's landfills are tomorrows mines. As I've studied and read history, I've noticed that mankind uses more but wastes less. There are some interesting sites about recycling and one I read showed that most of the metal lead we use and almost ALL lead is recycled. The only things stopping the complete recycling of everything is the cost and the development of industrial methods that can implement total recycling so that the process delivers more value than the energy put into it. I'm sure a group engineers and scientists can develop a way to completely extract and separate all the component parts of trash but at what cost? O_o

They should use prison labor. Make them earn a small amount of their keep.

Yea, bring back slavery. Copy what The English did when America was a new world to exploit. Irish and Scotsmen who were taken as prisoners of war and those The Crown determined to be criminals were shipped to America as slaves. Of course most people won't believe that the first slaves in America were Caucasians from Europe. Heck, the government could clean out gangs from the cities with the good old "Stop and frisk" routine and if nothing illegal is found, plant something on the "suspect" and sen them off to be slave labor. Prisons could really turn into money making operations that may actually wind up needing many more inmates to do the work so any excuse to send someone to prison may become SOP. Darn, I do believe it's already going on in one form or another. O_o

With any luck, some of the inmates would get sick, and blame it on metal poisoning from the labor. And then we'd pay for their medical care for the next several decades.
I'm a believer that inmates should have some thing productive to do. Job skills, rehab, and learn a trade, and do something other than watch TV and fight with each other. However, I can also see the potential for abuse.
I saw a TV show one time, I can't remember what state. Lousiana? Does horse training at one of the prisons. Says the inmates work hard, to be part of the horse crew.

They pick em up if you stuff them inside a plastic bag and shove them in with the regular garbage. That's how I get rid of old tires since the city won't take them if I put them on the curb. If I was a tire store I'd feel bad doing that but as a once every 5 year tire disposer I could give a crap and the city is entirely too particular about the trash they deign to collect.

Why are you surprised? It's junk. Worse, most places will charge you to take it away. I have one you can have if you cart it away. I'll even give you all the cables and a graphics card, or three, if you need them. All working but junk nonetheless.

That's not good for Capitalism. We need to keep buying new things if we want the economy to work. I actually have a high def CRT TV. It's just has heavy as the old TVs but is high def. I thought about replacing it with a nice flat screen LCD or LED, but I can't bring myself to just chuck it because it's a heavy box. It isn't like I move it much.

I remember back in the Reagan years. My phone rang, I hired help, and life was good. Now, we have all the various levels of socialism. I'm up to my eyes in debt, no hired help, and can't afford gasoline.
I have lost hope. Change it back!
When the regulations lighten up a bit, the economy will recover. Then, I'll start buying new stuff again. In the meantime, I'm using a PC from about five years ago, drive a 1995 model work van, and live in a 1974 trailer home. Thank you, socialists.

I keep getting all this made up propaganda from American friends blaming socialism and Obama for America's woes. Unbelievable bollix.

Depends. If you wash them, they're reusable.
