E-Waste

We all want the newest releases of the latest gadget...the newest cell phone, the hottest laptop, the best car stereo or MPS player...you get the picture. We like our high tech toys!! But what happens to the old stuff? Americans throw out 150 million phones a year, and 250 million computers over a recent 5-year period. Worst case scenario all that ends up in landfills, a lot of stuff and a lot toxic waste. Best case it goes to a recycling facility. Jessica found an e-waste recycling facility to see what they do with our old gadgets and appliances. She filed this report for Eco Company.
