Why do so many electronics companies ship their e-waste to other countries?

    The short answer is out of sight, out of mind.  Dismantling old electronics to remove all toxic or useful material is time-consuming and expensive.  Doing so in an eco-friendly manner is even more expensive.  So it is exported.  Other countries strip and burn e-waste with little or no concern for the environmental or health-related consequences that come from it.
