Electronic waste “E-waste” contains toxic chemicals and metals. Electronics are often shipped overseas to be disposed of–or rather dumped. At E-waste dump sites, electronic devises are broken apart and these dangerous substances leak (including arsenic, mercury, chromium) into the groundwater (poisoning the water) and are directly in contact with the workers who handle the waste. Often E-waste sites are not regulated strictly, and people are exposed to harmful chemicals without gloves, masks, proper air circulation, chemical containment, etc.
