What happens to surplus goods?

and others like it makes me think about what happens to the stuff that is completely without a buyer. Like pens that say "President Mondale" or the Clackers. I know things get sold at dollar stores or closeout places like National Wholesale Liquidators, but what about stuff that just do not sell and there are millions left? Does it get donated to a school in Sri Lanka? Does it get completely dismantled and all the components recycled?
Forgive my ignorance.
