You buy a new phone or computer and you take your old one to a local recycler. It’s the green thing to do, right? It turns out some of those devices may not be getting recycled at all.

“It's still a dirty little secret of the electronics recycling industry,“ says Jim Puckett, who has made it his life’s mission to stop first-world countries from dumping hazardous electronic waste onto developing nations. He’s the head of a Seattle-based watchdog group that’s been investigating the electronic waste trade for nearly 20 years.

Jenny Lee, a young woman raised in the wealthy English countryside, has chosen to become a nurse and now, as a newly qualified midwife, has gone to work in the poorest area of the city.
