It makes you think, doesn't it? Before you consider parting with a wad
of money, maybe you need to consider how you'll be able to dispose of
it in the future, first?


With the new electronic waste directive the liability falls back upon the
manufacturer.


Who will be requiring you to part with a bigger wad to cover the recycling
costs.

Ahh remember the good old days when we used to get paid for stuff that was
worth recycling.

No, that's not the point. It can be blindingly obvious that it isn't
trade waste, but they still won't let you in.


More than their job's worth. (Environmental waste engineer @ 40k +
benefits?)

No, they're all thickies. People who failed their dustbinman exams.

Indeed, but the government are hoping that will be masked by price deflation
of the item itself.
