Electronic waste or E-waste describes discarded electrical or electronic devices or appliances that have ceased to be of any value to their owners. The e-waste Guidelines have been developed to streamline the procedures of handling and disposal of e-waste generated by various sectors. The e-waste guidelines provide a framework for identification, collection, sorting, recycling and disposing of electrical and electronic waste (e-waste). The guidelines also provide the basis for developing legal instruments to enhance enforcement. The purpose of these guidelines is to assist the government, private sector, learning institutions among others to manage e-waste in a manner that enhances environmental conservation.
