13. E-Waste: Dark Side of Digital Age >> These days, it's often cheaper and more convenient to buy a new PC than to upgrade an old one.
But what happens to those old computers once they've been abandoned for newer models? The refuse from discarded electronics products,
also known as e-waste, often ends up in landfills or incinerators instead of being recycled. And that means toxic substances like lead,
cadmium and mercury that are commonly used in these products can contaminate the land, water and air.
