Is Africa the western world’s dumping ground?

Is Africa the western world’s dumping ground?

Electronic waste from Australia was recently found at Agbogbloshie landfill site halfway across the world in Ghana.

ABC reported that a computer screen was being pulled apart by children as young as five at the site. According to the report, children in Ghana are said to “tear apart e-waste from western nations with their hands, and burn circuit boards over open fires to melt out the precious metals”.It is illegal to ship broken computers out of Australia as the e-waste is considered hazardous.
