e-Waste

Regular household trash is certainly a concern, but electronic waste concerns me even more. Discarded computers, tablets, smart phones, printers, and televisions can end up in toxic dumps in under-developed countries.One computer may contain hundreds of hazardous chemicals that can get into soil and water. The amount of e-waste is growing faster than any other kind. It doesn't seem to be a major story, either, and I'm not sure how to address it.
