Same place birds go to die... no one knows. :) There should be dead birds and cameras EVERYWHERE, but alas...

In all seriousness, I have no idea.

I was at a resort with a guy that works at Canon and he says they use a machine that has spinning wheels made of steel to reduce all of there unrepairables to tiny pieces.

From there they recycle it.

Sold as Refurbished camera if it's repairable?

I've yet to have a Canon camera die...

The ones I still have, still work. The ones that went elsewhere are (afaik) still working for those that have them.

The last I saw, you can order a camera recycling kit from Canon. But it will cost you a small amount of money. $10 or so probably to cover shipping costs of your camera to Canon.
