No, you need to stop your ignorance, and watch the local news story I posted. The first sentence in the first post you made:
Today, Goodwill Industries International joined nine other companies and organizations in launching the Responsible Recycling (R2) Leader program, which is designed to advance the safe, responsible and sustainable repair and recycling of used electronics.
Those are re-usable or repairable parts, The op's pump is neither of each, although the radiator can be re-cycled as scrap metal if it is copper or aluminum.
Point two...using my own zip code:
No results were found within 25 miles of your location. We extended the search to 50 miles from your location.
Would you drive 50 miles or more to take your broken crap to a Goodwill store that recycles? We have metal re-cycle places within 5 miles from where I live, and they might take a radiator for a few pennies (not worth the gas to drive there @ $3.00 per gallon)
I'm not disagreeing that this is not a good thing, in fact it is great. But do not be so ignorant as to think that every city in this country has those options. The Goodwill stores in my area need to load that worthless crap up ($$$pay someone) then drive a truck ($$ pay employees & gas/wear and tear) to a local dump, or drive 50 miles to their recycling place. Not very feasible anyway you look at it financially when your business is mostly local donations. I'll re-word...If the area you live in is not one of those mega recycle places, then do not drop off your useless garbage that they can not re-sale locally, because they have to spend money to dump what they can not sell. Be morally responsible and take your useless crap to the local dump yourself. And I know personally for a solid fact that my local Goodwill will not accept CRT monitors.
Please stop trying to prove your point of justifying that is o.k. to dump useless worthless garbage on somebody's doorstep, and take care of it for yourself. If there is an electronic recycle place in your local area then great! but if not, then it's not o.k. to make someone else do it for you at their cost
