Now wait a minuite. Big Corp's lobbied for and got tax breaks so they could replace equipment with new stuff to improve the economy.

While is agree keeping things out of the land fills is very important the other applys also it is a 2 way street. I did not create the economic system but me and my kids have to live in it.
