We have the highest waste per poundage because of the packaging (everything you buy is individualy wrapped, or seperated to keep it from spoiling or getting damaged).
As far as Amigas getting tossed in the trash, have you seen what the gear has been getting sold for for the last decade? If anything people here like to squeeze the last dollar out of an item before they trash it. There is a huge market for used goods in the US, visit the local freecycle mailing list and see just what people will snap up and reuse. Computers seem to be an item that gets handed down a long way before it ends up in the trash.
