People wake up and exercise your mind.
BOTH are an extreme fraud.
E-waste is BS...believe me I know...it's a temporary feel good moment. very similar to Viagra.
And the giant fraud is Breast cancer research...give them trillions and they wound be no closer...and folks don't think they haven't found a cause and a cure. You will never know it...WHY...Your smart, you figure it out...Two breast per female..what a potential business...and don't think it not.

Pretty harsh comments. A note: If you have e-waste you can take it there and they'll dispose of it - at no cost to you. Better than sneaking it into your household trash or dumping it somewhere.
I fail to see how that constitutes "an extreme fraud" or "BS" or how Julia would "know." The Beta Ct. organization is listed with the state e-waste recycling agency as an approved recycler. That's enough for me.

That's a valid point, Diane. "Recycle for Breast Cancer" is actually a dba of "Recycle for Hope" which is run by Larry Behrens of Danville. (RfBC used to be Behrens' own dba until RfH was incorporated in 2005.)
It's a legitimate service, but a sleazy advertising gimmick. That's a shame.

Hi All - I have been bringing my stuff to RFBC for years. I took the time to check things out as most folks have not. They are reputable and legit. They are registered with the stae, cities and proper licensing boards. If you take the time and talk to them they are happy to tell you where the money goes and who the have donated to. They provide am excellent needed service while creating awareness about environmentally caused cancer. Just my .02
