I got my wife to drive me to the Town of Oyster Bay dump to dispose of an electric coffee maker and a toaster. If I threw them in the garbage they would just provide landfill, but this way they provided some reusable electric parts like the coil. That would make someone happy.
I don’t really know what they do with the electrical refuse they collect, but it must be worth something, otherwise why collect it? There are so many things for which we don’t know the reason.
As my friend Armand would say, “Look for the money.” They probably sell it. I look for an eternal reason—in prayer or good deeds.
