In the Karachi district of Lyari, hundreds of workers, including teenage children, earn their livelihoods by dismantling electronic scrap and extracting valuable components such as copper to sell. This is an insight into the personal cost of e-waste. Thousands of tons of e-waste such as discarded PCs, mobile phones and TVs, are dumped in Africa and Asia every year. Greenpeace research shows that some of this waste is exported from Europe to Pakistan.
