Great topic. I have always thought manufacturers should accept their products back in a full cycle. They are probably more qualified and prepared to ingest and process used washing machines, couches or furniture, and other items. We currently send cars to a junk yard, and many cars are cannibalized for the used car market. But it really does bring up the billion pound elephant in the room - consumers are driving the desire for everything new. That must be addressed on a whole by society and there is no easy answer.

November 15 is 'America Recycles Day' which got us at Energy Central thinking-- what can and should power providers be doing to step up their recycling contributions? What is your organization doing with equipment that ris ready to be retired? Do you have programs to help your customers recycle things like light bulbs or batteries? What are some outside the box ways in which utilities can contribute towards meeting their overall recycling goals?
I'm curious to hear from you-- chime in below!
