Recycling "expert" states bleeding obvious

A "recycling expert" has claimed that the Switchover process will result in an increase in the number of television sets being dumped. Speaking to Materials Recycling Weekly - no, really - Scott Butler predicted that switchover, a process that encourages people to upgrade every single piece of television equipment they own in order to continue watching TV, would lead to people scrapping their old sets. People get paid for this sort of thing, you know.
