Yesterday, I had dinner at a Cantonese restaurant and while waiting for food to be served, I picked up an English newspaper, The Sunday Morning Post. After flipping through the first several pages, I stumbled across an article on electronic waste. I wanted to share this everyone here:
Potentially hazardous electronic waste is being exported to the mainland by operators of waste dumps in the New Territories just months after Beijing implemented a ban.
The mainlandâ€™s law was passed in 2008 but it has taken several years to implement. Despite the delay, the Hong Kong government has yet to figure out a sustainable approach to managing its own electronic waste.
