e-Waste Cartoons

by Alex Hallatt

Here is the series on e-waste. It’s a growing problem – we see so many TVs and computer monitors dumped on the street here because people have upgraded to the latest digital TVs and flat screen monitors. And Apple considers 4 year old computers to be ‘antiques’. I’m keeping my 11 year old laptop and 7 year old desktop machines going as long as I can, but it gets difficult when older hardware isn’t supported by software providers (Google Picassa, I’m talking about YOU).

Processing e-waste has to be done carefully -there are a lot of toxic compounds in there and shipping the stuff off to China is hardly responsible behaviour if we care about the health and safety of their workers.
