Indians are buying more electronic goods, phones and computers than ever before. The country is now the world’s second-largest smartphone market after China. This creates a major challenge for India: how to recycle the millions of tons of digital waste thrown away every year.

A programme prepared by Patrick Lovett, Elom Marcel Toble and Claire Pryde.
