White Paper: E-waste Prevention, Take-Back System Design and Policy Approaches
This paper gives the reader the opportunity to understand the wide variety of policy options that have been implemented around the world in response to the e-waste problem. It also draws some conclusions both in terms of the nature of responses and in terms of potential policy recommendations. It seeks to present a variety of policy options on a large scale or in pilot tests in both developed and developing countries. The authors have tried to identify the pros and cons of each policy option, as there is no one-size-fits-all solution for e-waste policy, and what works under some conditions may be wholly inappropriate in others.
