Purpose of the E-waste Association

The E-Waste Association is a non-profit organisation which helps to coordinate responsible management of the entire electronic waste (e-waste) stream in a one-stop shop format nationwide (and beyond). It takes many different working partners to achieve a fully comprehensive e-waste management solution. Therefore the e-Waste Association is made up of independent business partners who are able and willing to work together in symbiotic working agreements to handle all parts of the e-waste stream in the most integrated and value added manner and according to the best technologies locally available while assuring safe data destruction at all times.

Our goals provide an integrated, comprehensive, environmentally and socially responsible solution for e-waste from each e-Waste Association partner concerned. EWROTA seeks to act as a one-stop-shop for pro-active and integrated e-waste management. Its members are guided by the following hierarchy of options, giving preference to the recovery of function of equipment where possible before optimising the recovery of materials for further downstream recycling and rework options.

Minimize waste

Reduce the amount of waste in our towns or something like that

Job creation

Create more opportunities for our people

Maximize resouce use

Raise value

Add value to each step of the e-waste
