unfortunately this has gone on for many many years.
the place in China is only one of many sites that are
and that the USoA does not have full source recycling
laws is just plain shameful...
(sigh) I don't think you realize how large the problem is on a local
scale -- regardless of where "local" happens to be!
I've done work with a local recycler. They would process ~3500 pounds
of "donations" every day, 6 days a week.
And, they weren't a "mainstream" service! You had to KNOW they existed
and where to find them!!
The saddest part was how much of it was in reusable condition... just
"outgrown" (I want THIS year's model!). Even sadder to see how much
of it was scrapped because of "manufacturing economies" -- save a few
pennies here, cut the product life in half...
