International Travel? This App Teaches Flirting In 4 Languages & Covers ALL The Bases, Including A Home Run ;-)

What they do with it all varies from item to item. Some of it is donated to non-profit organizations. Metal items are recycled as scrap. Food and liquids items are tossed (including all those bottles of booze. Sigh.). But most of it sees a different ending.
