Most companies want to dispose of their e-waste responsibly so they seek out an electronics recycler, or an asset recovery company. Unfortunately, all too often these e-waste recyclers are not recyclers at all. This eye-opening Basel Action Network (BAN) documentary featuring BAN founder Jim Puckett exposes the ugly underbelly of the computer recycling industry and what really happens with the used electronics discarded by businesses and individuals. The trade in toxic wastes leaves the poorer people of the world with an untenable choice between poverty and poison a choice that nobody should have to make. The Basel Action Network has qualified e-Steward recyclers that will not export toxic electronic waste to developing countries, including Redemtech, under its e-Stewards Initiative (www.e-stewards.org). Robert Houghton, president and CEO of Redemtech, a BAN e-Stewards Founder and leading IT asset disposition services provider, is interviewed.
