The amount of charity shops that throw away old games consoles is criminal,simply through lack of PAT testing equipment and training. Luckily sometimes things get rescued by 'donation' . Ive seen arcade cabs , boxed consoles and games collections taken to the tip for what seems like laziness. I'd rather see it recycled than as landfill,or donated to the RCM if not sellable. I draw the line at rescuing sports games from bins - its no less than they generally deserve. (anybody throwing away a copy of WCS2 on the MD will however find me rooting through their bins)
I agree totaly, so much working stuff is dumped, its outrageous, from a safety point of view though a small percentage of the dumped stuff may be or is dangerous, hence the reason it was dumped, I thought these companies were supposed to strip these things down for parts and re-use/melt bits etc. Selling them back on to the public is not the wisest of things to do, if they are not checking anything.
