Electronic waste (e-waste) is a global and growing threat to human and ecosystem health. Low-income countries bear a disproportionate burden of the impacts of e-waste, as higher-income countries often export waste to be recycled or disposed of in these less expensive settings.

A number of corporations, researchers, government agencies, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) are evaluating upstream solutions to reducing e-waste generation. Our project is aimed at the downstream efforts needed to address the substantial existing occupational and public health hazards associated with e-waste.
