Full text not available from this repository.


E-waste consists of obsolete computers, servers, televisions, cell phones, and every other piece of corporate electronic equipment deemed past its prime. Americans, who number about 300 million, own over two billion pieces of high-tech consumer electronics: computers, cell phones, televisions, printers, fax machines, microwaves, personal data devices, and entertainment systems among them. With growth being the main concern and the repercussions of our consumption on the back burner, what does this mean for the rest of the world? How does the excessive use of toxic materials effect our environment?
