    Do you think corporations should be able to throw away perfectly usable items?

    Many corporations make their employees destroy items that are usable and throw them away. With the amount of people in need do you think this is ok or should be allowed? Could tax breaks or other incentives encourage companies to stop wasting good products?

    yes, so many usable items even tvs and home furnishing get thrown away. Walmart is one of the worst stores for this type of shrinkage.  doubt tax breaks will make any kind of differance. There are cartons that are slightly tore open, it all gets thwn away.

    My company will have an employee sale a couple times a year when they have stock they are unable to sell.  Only things that gets tossed are items with defects

      That's so much better than destroying and throwing bleach all over it! Much better!

    Regarding food leftovers commanded to be destroyed, they do that to avoid someone eating it and suing them when they get sick and food handling regulations that say if it is over X age, destroy it so you can't get blamed for selling old stuff.
    For office supplies, furniture and so forth, they typically will sell it if they can.
