60 Minutes – Colorado Recycler indicted for illegal e-waste exports

As featured on 60 Minutes on 1/13/2013, a Colorado Recycler was indicted by a Federal Grand Jury on charges of wire and mail fraud as well as environmental crimes. Two executives from Executive Recycling, a Colorado metro-area electronics recycling company was found guilty of dumping hazardous computer waste overseas instead of reusing and reselling it domestically.

The same company was profiled in a 60 Minutes expose in 2008 about the environmental and human toll of disposing of used computers and electronics (e-waste), in China and other countries. Executive Recycling told clients that all the electronics they collected from them would be reused or disposed of in accordance with all environmental regulations.
