Red Tape Trumps Recycling
Op-Ed: The full story isn't clear here, but it looks like a government crackdown on the very popular Alameda County Computer Recycling Center. For readers not in the Silicon Valley area, I can personally attest that ACCRC is a well-run, well-supported organization which does a valuable community service. So why would an EPA inspector harshly penalize them just for having disorganized paperwork? The moral here is, even if you're the technological equivalent to a saint, nobody is immune from bureaucracy. And although we go to great lengths here to remain objective, from what we can tell so far, it looks like the recycling center deserves your help.
