As a tool for myself, I decided to make a map of who the key players are in this whole issue of e-waste, as well as where it goes and where it's coming from. I also pointed out some differences among how e-waste is handled in particular countries. For example, in India and China both countries melt down circuit boards in order to obtain valuable metals and materials, whereas in Africa they only burn piles of e-waste solely for the reason of making more room to toss more e-waste into landfills.
