Your e-trash can help organized crime?

The Canadian Press

I caught this article on my Google News reader.  Could my e-trash really be helping organized crime. Well, according to this article, yes.  The article only says that gangs are now shipping e-waste to Asia for re-use and salvaging of parts.  It also voices concern that there will not be a concern for environmental impact on the other end either.

However, there is no mention of what the public can or is supposed to do to prevent all of this.

So safely assuming that organized crime has not infiltrated your local Return-It Depot run by Encorp Pacific, I would suggest taking your old TVs, computers, printers, and monitors to them.  Not all depots take electronics, so please check the website to see which ones accept electronics.
