In January last year, the European Parliament was forced to pass a new law in order to curb the dumping of electronic goods like phones and computers in landfill sites. Dumping electronic goods in landfills is extremely dangerous to our environment: the toxic chemicals inside pollute the air and groundwater supplies continuously.
