The E-Waste Tragedy (86 mn)


Every year, up to 50 million tons of electronic waste - computers, television sets, mobile phones, household appliances - are discarded in the developed world. Since recycling is costly, around 75% of this waste ends up being shipped to countries such as India, China or Ghana, where it is dumped illegally, polluting the environment and affecting the lives of those forced to live with it. Mike Anane, Ghana’s most experienced environmental journalist goes on an investigation which begins in the heart of the City of London, takes us to Spain, Germany and Brussels, and ends at Agbogbloshie, one of the largest e-waste dumps in Africa. The film will reveal how e-waste is diverted from the legal recycling circuits in Europe and sent to the Third World, using false paperwork and with many of those in the know turning a blind eye.
