Solar trash: Without intervention, a shocking (and costly) amount will be produced

It is unlikely that state-by-state legislation will create a recycling infrastructure capable of handling the level of PV waste by 2030. What is not entirely unlikely, though, is that there are enough responsible industry leaders that will create their own policies for responsible end-of-life management, and will spread awareness advocating for industry wide EOL planning.
Do solar industry leaders committed to renewable energy, need to be legislated to make the choice away from landfilling their end-of-life solar panels to recycling or refurbishing them? Do they need to have landfill bans in place to motivate them to make the clean energy choice for recycling? I don't think the real leaders do. What do you think?
