The study subjects included; importers and distributers, assemblers, consumers, collectors, repairers, dismantlers, and recyclers of EEE and the disposal mechanisms available at present. All EEE of the four categories 'large household appliances', 'small household appliances', information and communication technologies' and 'consumer electronics' were included in the study. The findings were then extrapolated to become representative of Ghana as a whole. Sources of data included surveys, CEPS, UN Comtrade, and Statistical Service etc.
