Can the circular economy of E-waste be a bridge over the digital divide?


How can we better the route e-waste takes within the city of Sheffield so that items which are not yet at end of life can be used by those people who need them the most? How then at the the end of life can it be ensured that the items are correctly disposed of and recycle effectively?
