    GM could make it 100% by attaching a guarantee of retrun to each vehicle it produces so when it is no longer safe to drive, whoever then owns it can return it to GM and be paid a set percentage below whatever the recycle materials are worth. That way everyone gets something and nothing goes into landfill.
