Human beings threw out an estimated 41.8 million tonnes of e-waste last year. And the UK has contributed 1.5 million tonnes of this so far. Needless the say, we are far from the most innocent offender. Indeed, the UK actually ranks sixth in the world for high levels of e-waste.
Sadly, at the present moment, only 15% of e-waste is recycled. And since most electrical waste is dumped neither securely nor ethically, this has led to hellish underground economies springing up around e-waste in China and Ghana.
