I got voted down on this very site years ago for suggesting that this was happening.
Though you might push your e-waste to a supplier, the last one I spoke to used to take it to Heathrow Airport where it's then exported en-masse. He used to have all the correct paperwork, WEEE disposal licence, etc. and so did the other end. He was actually paid by taking spare copper (cables etc.) and melting them down, and he'd get £1 per monitor and things like that. It gave him enough that he'd collect anything over 20 items for free, load them in his van, drive them to Heathrow where they were sorted and pushed on for "recycling" in other countries.
Sorry, but it probably costs more than £1 per monitor to ship it internationally, let alone dispose of it safely. And the stuff we gave him was stuff that no amount of repair could bring back from the dead. And nasty stuff too - projectors with bulbs, printers with toner, CRT's, fridges, etc. That all costs to take care of properly.
There is no way that's being exported for recycling and then making a profit for anyone, even you could get the base cost of the raw materials back from it. They're shipping it off to countries that will happily sign off that they do "proper recycling process X" and then burying it in landfill and taking their fees for doing so.
I suspect, but similarly wouldn't be able to prove, that the same happens with an awful lot of the stuff that ends up in my council-mandated recycling bin (my council just-so-happens to use the recycling company that the councillor responsible for waste just-so-happens to own - I know, because I got him into the local papers when they stopped picking up my rubbish and did some digging, and COULD prove that). Food waste to composy? Absolutely. Paper, cardboard - sure, that's quite easy to bleach, mulch and re-use. Maybe even glass. But all those plastics? I'm not convinced that's profitable at all when they have to clean, sort, handle, melt-down, and can only use as low-grade plastics afterwards.
