Professor Margaret Bates recently visited Zambia, representing the International Solid Waste Association as an expert in the field of electronic waste ('e waste').
Margaret toured a range of waste sites in Choma looking at dumping and burning. Working with other European experts and colleagues in Choma, Margaret used the information collected to help develop a master plan to deal with e waste in the district.
At the end of the successful visit Margaret took the chance to visit the Victoria Falls and a national park.
