As a result of the Swiss Knowledge Partnership in e-Waste Recycling, the concept of a “Green e-Waste Channel” was introduced in several cities in China, India and South Africa, aiming an environmentally friendly and socially responsible management of e-waste. The concept embraces the whole infrastructure associated with an e-waste management system. It starts when the consumer decides to dispose off his equipment, thus at the collection of discarded equipment, and ends with the final disposal of residues. A detailed case study was performed in the Gauteng province in South Africa with focus on IT equipment. The case study demonstrated that the Green e-Waste Channel is a suitable general concept for developing countries, when taking into account the specific context and needs of a current local situation.
