>It would not be a crime to hold onto old tech, just not to throw it out
with the trash so this is good for the hobby. We should all be taking our
old tech to the recycling center now, regardless of the government - it's
the green thing to do. If anything, I could see how people will hold onto

recycling center where there's at least a chance that historical items will
be picked by an attentive employee for resale/re-use.
