We spent a couple of days at the Agbogbloshie e-waste dump which is currently the biggest e-waste dump worldwide. It serves as a final destination for legal and illegal exportation and environmental dumping of electronic waste from industrialized nations. Often referred to as a “digital dumping ground”, millions of tons of e-waste are processed each year in Agbogbloshie.
The dumping ground is quite centrally located in Accra.
We salvaged harddrives and will reanimate them in upcoming workshops for a new project we are working on.
