What happens to products you return to Amazon

Online shopping has caused a huge returns problem. UPS predicts a 10% rise in holiday returns this year, and sellers tell us they throw away about a third of returned items. Returns generate 5.8 billion pounds of landfill waste each year and 16 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions. Now, Amazon has committed to zero product disposal, adding new options for sellers to refurbish, resell and liquidate returns instead of disposing of them.
