push back on the waste?

Why are'nt corporations held responsible for their product being in a landfill? They produced the product. They should be responsible for the full life cycle. If they work towards a recycling program of their products, they wouldnt be in the landfill. Each product should come with recycling instructions or web address (with info on that page). Is there someplace that we (as consumers) can find info on how to recycle or return the products/materials that we have, back to nature? Sure abstinence is an option, but it doesnt work for all. What we need is one location to describe the various options for: paper, phonebooks, various plastics, glass, metals, electronics, fabrics, etc.
Here's the situation. So every Thursday night, someone drives around the neighborhoods near my house -throwing out free sample newpapers. Did I ask for this? To me, this is someone littering in my driveway. Just a thought.
