Major technology firms should be responsible.....

Hi,

What to do with old computers?? The problem of disposing off the e-waste is growing all the more. In developed countries, hundred of PCs are being discarded almost every year and are being sent to underprivileged communities.

Nepal is one of such country that has refused to receive such charity because of health concerns. And yes, if the necessary precautions will not be taken, more will be added to the list. I think, all the major technological firms should be accountable on how and where they are discarding the e-waste and what steps they are taking to prevent its ill-effects.

What do you have to say?
