    I cannot find any domestic evidence of e-waste contamination. I am sure that there is some. Many Americans sneak electronics into dumps.

Even reputable recycling companies have been found shipping their most toxic electronics off to developing nations. There is a link below to a fascinating story from 60 minutes implicating a Colorado-based recycling firm.
