    We all know what is the common thing to do in America these days. It’s a throw away society. You keep something until it has a problem or stops working for some reason, and what is the next thing we do? We throw it away! America is a throw away society. We have a thousand times more waste now then ever before in our history. Whole industries have been created to deal with the waste of stuff we throw away. It’s recycling of sorts, and I can tell you right now that the recycling is not done to save the damn planet. It’s done to make a buck off the stuff that is thrown away that somebody figured out how to use. Maybe somebody picks that glass up and remelts it down and uses it for something else we’re not aware of. Maybe it’s just thrown in the land fill. I don’t know.

    But I can tell you this, if that German company would contact Solyndra and tell them that they saw this video, and maybe they know already and don’t care, and set up a contract with Solyndra and buy the glass tubes back that Solyndra doesn’t use or need? It’s just doing what everyone (not entirely) does in America these days.

    I don’t know about other companies or how they deal with material they no longer need or cannot dispose of in any other manner. So private companies have policies that allow for such disposal of material whether they could have sold that material or not.

    This is just a small example of how companies can waste millions of dollars worth of material and products that are discarded in the dumpster every day in America. And we wonder why the prices are so high? Many years ago my mother-in-law used to work for J.C. Penney’s. One day my wife and I were in the back parking lot waiting for her to get off work so we could give her a ride. My yound daughter was little then and I had to change her diaper. I didn’t want to keep the diaper in the car so I went over to the big dumpster behind the store to throw the diaper away. I am not ashamed to admit that I do go into a dumpster from time to time, ha, ha, and I decided to climb up and take a look in Penney’s dumpster.

    I couldn’t believe my eyes as to what I found. There must have been twenty brand new back packs in there besides all the display cabinet glass, you know that real thick tempered glass that would cost us a fortune to buy, along with cabinets and all sorts of stuff I couldn’t get to. There were sheet after sheet of that glass so I could only get to seven or eight of the back packs. But they still had the lables on them. I grabbed them and took them to the car.

    Later on when I asked my mother-in-law what the deal was about all that material and products that were just thrown in the dumpster. She said that was their policy and that was to discard everything that was seasonal and that was all the seasonal stuff that was under the glass and cabintry, and what about the backpacks? She said they did not put “returned” inventory back on the shelf, instead they threw it away. Well, there might not be anything wrong with it, it may have just been the wrong color or something. In the trash! Think about how many Penney’s stores there are nationwide. And if they all did this it must amount to millions of dollars and that alone would keep prices high.

    Well, that was years ago and since I was in the dumpster just a month later Penney’s must have had a camera on the dumpster or something, but the dumpster was moved to another location and was mostly inside of a covered enclosure. I couldn’t get to any of it then. And don’t think that has stopped since my mother-in-law worked for Penney’s and she worked for them for over forty years. That was a long time ago and she’s deceased now.

    But throwing material and product is not uncommon with many companies these days. I don’t know why they do it, like, I haven’t talked to a high level manager lately to try and find out why the do what they do that dosen’t seem to make much sense to us. We’re so used to doing without that we don’t throw much of anything away, and repair as much stuff as is practical. Repair used to be a way of life in America. Maybe we need to go back to that. Maybe doing so would stop companies like Solyndra from doing what they are doing.
