Thanks to mobile phones, computers, and other electronic waste, there’s so much gold in the average urban landfill that sometimes dumps can be up to 50 times richer than an actual gold mine. Most of the wealth that goes into making electronics–around $21 billion in gold and silver alone, each year–ends up being lost, in part because some electronics don’t get recycled, and in part because current recycling methods are messy and inefficient. One unlikely solution: Using natural fungi to recover precious metals from the trash.
