Over the past two decades, the global market of Electrical and Electronic
Equipment (EEE) continues to grow exponentially, while the life span of those products
becomes shorter and shorter. Due to Rapid economic growth, urbanization and
industrialization, demand for consumer goods, has been increased for both the
consumption and the production of EEE. Any improperly disposed electronics can be
classified as E-waste. While the Government and the industry are unanimous on the view
that E-waste needs to be efficiently managed from a social and environmental standpoint,
there still is a need for them to mutually arrive at a consensus by understanding the
practical and cultural realities on ground.
