The photo-documentary report entitled “The Digital Dump: Exporting Re-use and Abuse to Africa,” exposes the ugly underbelly of what is thought to be an escalating global trade in toxic, obsolete, discarded computers and other e-scrap collected in North America and Europe and sent to developing countries by waste brokers and so-called recyclers.In Lagos, while there is a legitimate robust market and ability to repair and refurbish old electronic equipment including computers, monitors, TVs and cell phones, the local experts complain that of the estimated 500 40-foot containers shipped to Lagos each month, as much as 75% of the imports are “junk” and are not economically repairable or marketable. Consequently, this e-waste, which is legally a hazardous waste is being discarded and routinely burned in what the environmentalists call yet “another “cyber-age nightmare now landing on the shores of developing countries.”What people are saying about “The Digital Dump”:

“Most citizens, governments and businesses have blinders on concerning sham reuse and recycling of their e-waste. “The Digital Dump” rips those blinders away. Save your breath. Show the film. Then talk. You will have instant allies asking honest questions. That’s how change happens.” – Sego Jackson, Principal Planner, Snohomish County, Washington

“Digital Dump pinpoints the horrific impact to human health and the environment in developing countries that results from illegal exports and exploitative practices purveyed by certain segments of the electronics recycling industry today. The right information can help us all make the responsible decision with our e-waste, and Digital Dump delivers just that.” – James W. Kao, President and CEO of GreenCitizen Inc.

The new hard-hitting documentary on the dumping of toxic computer wastes to China that continues to open peoples’ eyes to the true horror of the high-tech revolution.What people are saying about “Exporting Harm”:

“Everyone, every industry CEO, every solid waste manager, every politician, every student, every citizen, should see Exporting Harm. We need to establish sustainable systems for managing used electronic products. This video shows what not to do, and will help guide us all to ultimately do the right thing.” – Mr. Sego Jackson, Principal Planner of Snohomish County, Washington State, Solid Waste Management Division and NEPSI (National Electronics Product Stewardship Initiative) stakeholder.

“If there ever was a question about where the majority of the U.S. e-scrap is going, this documentary presents undeniable evidence. U.S. generators and recyclers of e-scrap must pursue domestic solutions to stop the devastating impact that e-scrap is having on the people and environment of China.” – Ms. Lauren S. Roman, Vice President of United Recycling Industries, Inc.

“Exporting Harm” is an incredible video that strips the facade off of computer ‘recycling’ and shows the underside of corporate globalization in ways that will shock and outrage most people. It reveals the “dirty secrets” of the high-tech revolution and provides a ringing call to action for corporate responsibility, and a call for global environmental justice. This film should win a bunch of awards. – Ted Smith, Executive Director of Silicon Valley Toxics Coalition and NEPSI stakeholder.
