A Week in a Toxic Waste Dump

Documentary in which Reggie Yates heads to Ghana to live on one of the largest electronic waste dumps in the world - Accra's Agbogbloshie.

Documentary in which Reggie Yates heads to Ghana to live on one of the largest electronic waste dumps in the world - Accra's Agbogbloshie. Working with a group of 'burner boys', the people grafting at what is considered to be the bottom of the ladder, Reggie discovers first-hand what life is like for the people who eke out a living on the site. Dumping electronic waste is illegal, and the chemicals in the soil in Agbogbloshie mean it has been described as 'the most toxic place on earth'.
