Whereas the Chilean economy and its Information and Communications Technology (ICT) industry is booming, action will soon be required to manage the increasing streams of waste from electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE). To help develop appropriate recycling infrastructure this study intends to: 1) analyze the generation and management of electronic waste and 2) estimate actual and future quantities of computer waste in Chile.
