Determine the resources that can be extracted by recycling.

Determine the magnitude of the waste and the corresponding magnitude to "solve" the problem. (I am tired of key chains made from circuit boards, it has no impact whatsoever)

Along those lines, determine the amount of resources needed to exact the "recycled resources" and discover if there is a gain or loss.

Determine a new method to extract the resources.

Convince an economy based on consumption to stop consuming.
