  74. 74. “About 150 million television sets, washing machines, refrigerators, air- conditioners and computers are discarded every year in China...Only 10 percent gets recycled.” -- 2007 China Daily report 1
  75. 75. “When the original Basel Convention was adopted in 1989, it was primarily an instrument to monitor the transboundary movement of hazardous waste rather than to prevent and reduce them.” -- 2008 Daily News, Sri Lanka 2
  76. 76. “Some parties [of the convention] say that the export of used e-products into Nigeria is a way to address the digital divide and to provide more jobs for the people. In reality, a lot of these items are useless and end up in waste lots and burned.” -- 2008 Daily News, Sri Lanka 3
  77. 77. “The improper treatment of electronics creates serious pollution that takes more than a century to dissipate, exposing the men, women, and children of the countryside to major health hazards.” -- 2009 China Daily report 4
  78. 78. “Tens of thousands of tonnes of toxic waste from Scotland are being illegally dumped in Africa and Asia every year... threatening the environment and endangering the health...This is about ensuring that Scottish waste isn’t dumped on developing nations which have insufficient facilities to deal with it.” -- 2010 Sunday Herald Newspaper, Scotland 5
  79. 79. “The Basel BanAmendment which prohibits the export of toxic waste from developed countries such as the European Union to developing countries can further enhance the control that is needed to prevent toxic wastes ending up in Asia. Asian governments will be well placed against this threat if they ratify the Basel Ban” -- Richard Gutierrez, Executive Director of the Asia-Pacific office of the Basel Action Network, 20106
