Exporting is bad for a number of reasons:
It’s illegal – Federal and International law prohibit the exporting of eWaste.
Less developed countries lack the government infrastructure required for worker and environmental safety.
It’s our mess, our responsibility.
It sends jobs overseas. eWaste recycling is one of the fastest growing sectors of our economy.
There’s plenty more reasons. If you want an overview of the ugly side of eWaste Recycling check out the Basel Action Network’s Website
