I was watching Vangaurd last nite (after the season premiere of The Boondocks) and learned a few things on electronic waste.
The disposal of e-waste does not only occur in Guiyu, China but other parts of Asia such as India and Pakistan. Ghana, Kenya, and Nigeria are also developing countries which fall victim to discarded e-waste from the US, Australia, and parts of Europe. So far more than 19 states in the US have passed legislation laws against e-waste.
