In yet another example of how every day in every way California is full of fail, they spent $320 million that they don't really have to recycle E-waste that in other states private companies pay money for to salvage. And it turns out that the program is riddled with fraud and corruption. More at the link.

Care to comment as to why California has a huge e-waste problem and blew $320 million on it, while Texas spends $0 and doesn’t?

Certified collectors must obtain the names and addresses of those who discard CRTs so that the state can verify that the CRTs were not shipped in from out-of-state to qualify for the state payments. In other words, neighboring states do not have this program, but it is worth the effort to truck CRTs in.

I have an old analog television set that I’d gladly recycle but I can’t find anyone who’d take it. Apparently such a program is not economically viable.
