India faces huge challenge of recycling e-waste

Indians are buying more electronic goods, phones and computers than ever before. The country is now the world's second-largest smartphone market after China. This creates a major challenge for India: how to recycle the millions of tons of digital waste thrown away every year. Although legislation exists, more than 90% of electronic products are still reprocessed illegally in the slums of large cities, causing irreparable damage to the environment and to people's health.
