After I read this article, I was in shock.

I had never thought about the millions of discarded computers the western world generates each year-- and where it goes/what happens to it.

The article above has an enormous amount of info in it.

For example: The EPA says it costs TEN TIMES as much to recycle the e-waste here vs shipping it overseas.

Seems like a HUGE opportunity to me.

Figure out how to properly recycle e-waste (old computers, etc) in a GREEN way, and you have a enormous winner here.

It's a classic win-win-win scenario:

-Millions of old computers
-Lots of precious metals
-Also old working computers useful to the developing world
-terrible toxic waste, someone needs to come up with a green answer

*******

I'm thinking you'd even be eligible for some rather sizable govt and corporate grants. :)
