I was told by Walmart, when you return TVs to Walmart, they throw them away or donate them. Steals or deals?

I returned 2 perfectly fine TVs to Walmart B&M today.

As usual, the return desk associate tore through the packages like an animal.

I asked if the TVs go back to the manufacturer, and 2 of the associates said no, they throw them away. Then they clarified that they donate them to some place or send to electronics recycling.
They don't even do open-box.
You return a mint $1000 TV, and they send it straight to recycling ???!

Immediately I wondered how we could intercept these throwaways.

Has anyone gone dumpster diving at Walmart for TVs?

1. Don't believe a minimum wage Walmart associate.

2. Think. Do you really believe they throw away millions of dollars of merchandise?

3. Research. Places like this exist everywhere.
