Abstract: The global consumption of Electrical and Electronic Equipment has seen an exponential surge over the last few decades. The growing dependence on various electrical and electronic equipment in our daily lives coupled with the constant technological advancements are major contributors to this global surge. Eventually, these Electrical and Electronic Equipment will eventually land up as E-waste. Due to the complex nature of the E-waste, their contribution to the waste stream poses a great problem. Some of the E-waste contains hazardous substances, which if not treated in a safe manner, might cause environmental problems which would eventually lead to detrimental health effects. This study explores and assesses the current e-waste management practices in Singapore and also aims to understand the attitudes and behaviours of the people in Singapore with regard to e-waste and the locally available avenues to help dispose of their e-waste. The study also looks at the various e-waste management strategies that have been implemented by other countries and try to incorporate the good practices in the local context. This study will help gain insight into the management of the e-waste that is generated domestically in Singapore.
