AbstractBased upon a survey on household electronic and electrical equipment, this paper provides information on the public’s perception of the localenvironmental quality, environmental awareness and environmental performance, and of their willingness to pay for improving environmentalquality and making green purchases. The results indicate that Ningbo residents are not satisfied with the local environmental quality, and theywould like very much to share environmental responsibility. About 64% of the respondents are aware of Chinese environmental labeling. Nearly70% and 80% of the respondents are willing to pay for environmental improvement and to purchase environmentally friendly products, respectively. The amount of household electrical and electronic equipment has increased dramatically and most of them are phased out within their product lifetimes. Of all the respondents, 61% chose to reuse and recycle waste electrical and electronic equipment.
