The Digital Dump (2005)

Watch The Digital Dump: Exporting Re-use and Abuse to Africa, BAN’s documentary that exposes the ugly underbelly of an escalating trade in toxic, discarded electronics. Join BAN’s investigative team as they tour the second-hand electronics market and dumps in Lagos, Nigeria. Watch as we unveil environmental and data security threats that leave us all vulnerable.

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.”

“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.”
