Repair and jobs.

“To say nothing of the impact on jobs: landfilling a kiloton of ewaste creates <1 job; recycling that waste creates 15 jobs, while repairing it creates 200 good, local jobs that can’t be offshored (you don’t send a phone overseas for repair).”

@neil actually, many companies force you to do exactly that. But yes, local options would be welcome.
@neil if you throw away all those cat excavators you'll also create a lot of jobs that can't be exported.
