    and one large e-waste item to properly "recycle" - F**k. I bet it gets shipped to China or Ethopia anyway for "recycling"

    Honestly, it was jarring to hear that so much "recycling" was shipped off to landfills for people leagues below the poverty line to risk their lives salvaging scraps from. Disgusting.

    Idk, send it off to someone who might salvage it for themselves? That's what family plans for the tv that got fried during a storm.

    Also, RIP monitor, long service.

    15 years is pretty solid. I love that we have e-waste programs rather than the landfill of the past. But always feel guilty as hell about the possible destination. Australia does have local recycling. We began halting export of our recyclables about 3 years ago. But I don't know if we have the capacity to deal with all the e-waste yet.

    Hit by the capacitor plague of 1997 - 2007. Those caps still taking things out.
