Panorama - E-Waste (Track My Trash)

There was a really great programme on Panorama last night, it covered the dubious practices of the unlicensed WEEE waste sector. The Environment Agency tracked TV sets they see where they ended up. In come cases they got as far as Africa where they were dumped and scavenged by children.

This kind of practice is absolutely abhorrant and it's good to see the Environment Agency taking steps to make sure people are aware of what can happen to WEEE waste that is not treated correctly.

I highly recommend you watch the programme and see why it's important to work with licensed waste contractors for your WEEE waste.
