    An excerpt from the editorial in The Japan Times:

    The study, conducted by United Nations University, a research branch of the U.N., found that in volume terms, the largest amount of e-waste was generated in the United States and China, which together accounted for 32 percent of the total. The third most wasteful country by volume was Japan, which discarded a grand total of 2.2 million tons in 2013.
