[GreenYes] Re: Recycling Tennis Balls

Title: [GreenYes] Re: Recycling Tennis Balls

More questions ~

Why is it that companies are allowed to sell tennis balls without having a
plan for recovering and recycling them at end-of-life... Who do they think
is going to chase after those stray balls... why should the public be
spending time and dollars trying to figure out what to do with old tennis
balls.... doesn't it make more sense for the producer of tennis balls to
develop markets for old tennis balls, and then put in place the
infrastructure to get them there..
