Recently we have been uber consumers of almost anything and computers have been no exception either. However, do you ever sit back and think what happens to the computer that you have just left at the local tip?
Well it certainly doesn’t stay there for too long that is for sure, in fact when there is enough old computers they are stuffed into shipping containers and shipped off to land fill sites in Africa and Asia.
Nevertheless, the story does not end there either, for these areas are some of the poorest places in the world and old computers have become a commodity, eventually what is left is just dumped and that is where your old computer ends up!
