Electronic waste describes discarded electrical or electronic devices. There is a lack of consensus as to whether the term should apply to resale, reuse, and refurbishing industries, or only to a product that cannot be used for its intended purpose. Informal processing of electronic waste in developing countries may cause serious health and pollution problems, though these countries are also most likely to reuse and repair electronics.
All electronic scrap components, such as CRTs, may contain contaminants such as lead, cadmium, beryllium, or brominated flame retardants. Even in developed countries recycling and disposal of e-waste may involve significant risk to workers and communities and great care must be taken to avoid unsafe exposure in recycling operations and leaking of materials such as heavy metals from landfills and incinerator ashes. Scrap industry and U.S. EPA officials agree that materials should be managed with caution

This is a video detailing the field stripping and cleaning of the Walther PP (Police Pistol). The gun in this video (serial number documentation) was manufactured in Germany in WWII in 1944 possibly in Walther’s Mfg. plant at the Neuengamme Concentration Camp where over 106,000 were incarcerated and where over 50,000 brutally died.
This video is edited from the RGR video “Walther Arms Overview – Review PP / PPK” for those who want only to see how to field strip the Walther without viewing the entire overview Walther video.
