Wasted Health: The Tragic Case of Dumpsites

A report from the International Solid Waste Association, Wasted Health: The Tragic Case of Dumpsites, illustrates how the issues surrounding open dumpsites in the developed world 40 years ago are still prevalent in developing countries, but are also being compounded by unprecedented issues such as the unregulated accumulation of discarded electronics, mobile phones, and medical waste.

An abstract and link to the full report is on Sanitation Updates .
