Abstract

This study aims to identify current e-waste management practices by households as well as examines the factors influencing household e-waste recycling intention. Data was collected from a sample of 345 households in Melaka, Malaysia by means of a self-administered questionnaire survey. Snowball sampling which is part of the non-probability sampling was utilized in this research. The results show that the quantities of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) in use and the rate of replacements of even functioning EEE are increasing, which in turn increase the generation of e-waste. This study also provides evidence that the level of households’ awareness towards e-waste recycling is still low. Thus, the time has come for the introduction of a recycling programme for these potentially harmful waste materials.
