After tracking hazardous waste shipments and dumping around the world, a national environmental group has sounded the alarm about a million pounds of old electronics innocently donated in Pennsylvania.

Basel Action Network contends that the Western Pennsylvania Humane Society and Allegheny County, Pa., should have known that a free electronics recycling program was too good to be true. The environmental group this week issued a report claiming that EarthEcycle -- which collected more than 1 million pounds of old electronics through the Humane Society's recycling campaign in March and April -- ships hazardous waste to countries where it will most likely end up in toxic dumping grounds.
