Moore's law teamed up with the Chinese electronic device industry are inserting new steps into the Lansink’s Ladder. Next to the sections for used fluorescent bulbs and batteries, which are classified as klein chemisch afval (household hazardous waste), Albert Heijn grocery stores have now added a separate opening for used mobile phones!
“But wait,” you’ll probably say, “am I now really supposed to separate every mobile phone I’m throwing away from other waste!?»

The only unclear point now is how one is to handle used tablets and read e-books. ■
