Description

Radio Television Hong Kong reports that western companies are dumping computer wastes on China and other less developed countries, despite their governments' crackdowns. The broadcast profiles the computer recycling industry of Guiyu, a small village in the Guangdong Province of China, where "workers burn computers' original components to extract valuable metals from them. The useless parts are then casually discarded, releasing toxic materials, polluting the surrounding environment. "
