China Serves As Dump Site For Computers

GUIYU, China -- This is the end of the road for the toxic detritus of the computer age. In towns such as this one on China's southeastern coast, vast quantities of obsolete electronics shipped in from the United States, Europe and Japan are piled in mountains of waste. Even as entire communities, including children, earn their livelihoods by scavenging metals, glass and plastic from the dumps, the technological garbage is poisoning the water and soil and raising serious health concerns.

а в город этот попадают только компы с хорошим графическим интерфейсом, наверное...
