If you're interested in this topic I highly recommend Adam Minter as better source on this stuff. He adopts a strictly economic perspective on the recycling trade which makes way more sense.
If you're truly interested in the economics of the waste industry, the book Junkyard Planet by Adam Minter was a good introduction: https://www.amazon.com/Junkyard-Planet-Travels-Billion-Dolla...

If anyone is interested in the aspects of reuse and recycle touched on in this article, I highly recommend Junkyard Plant, a book about recycling largely but not exclusively focused on China. There are a couple of chapters on electronics and Shenzhen, as well as other chapters ranging from paper & cotton, steel, plastics, aluminium, etc, and the entire sourcing chain.
