Rhetorical question time

I wonder how much high-tech gear goes straight from the box to the trash? Or perhaps, hopefully, to the recycler? Think of things bought as spares, but which become obsolete before they ever get used. Or gear owned by bankrupt companies. Or equipment that's simply over-bought (some of you will find the phrase "Bob math" meaningful here).

I bet that quantity can be measured in tons every year.
