Did you get plenty of new gadgets over Christmas?
Whether it was Bluetooth speakers, a new laptop or PC monitor, it’s likely it replaced old equipment you need to get rid of.
According to the UN’s environmental programme, up to 90% of the world’s electronic waste is being dumped illegally. And this accumulation of waste is actually worth £12 billion annually. Seems a waste of ‘waste’, doesn’t it? Forecasts also predict waste will reach 50 million tonnes in 2017, with each tonne being worth around £300.
The final destination of much waste is Africa or Asia, particularly Ghana and Nigeria.
