We have lots of legacy material, and everyone is struggling with economic incentives on how to get it recycled so that private e-recycling companies can stay in business while processing this material. Then there’s miniaturization (e.g. wearable technology such as watches), where there’s not much interest there from a recycler’s perspective, but it’s going to end up in a manufacturer takeback program mixed in with general consumer e-waste and then sent to one of our shops. Ultimately, it’s a policy issue. It won’t just pay for itself.
