Is that really true?  I'd think a reseller would buy stuff by the truckload 
without much hassle and that would avoid carting it to the dump.

Are there some funny accounting rules screwing things up?

Are there security considerations?

Can they still toss stuff in the dump?  Will green regulations raise the cost 
of destroying gear enough so that it's cheaper to sell it?

These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's.  I hate spam.
