South Africa

South Africa has some better developed recycling facilities where the majority of the collected e-waste is recycled. However due to the absence of an efficient take back scheme for consumers together with the current lack of appropriate financing mechanisms for collectors and recyclers still only a fraction of the e-waste (2009 estimates: 10%) finds its way to recyclers. The SECO programme was facilitating the development of a national e-waste management strategy jointly with the IT Association of South Africa and the e-Waste Association of South Africa. In local initiatives it supported «Green e-Waste Channels » for Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg, guaranteeing safe and controlled disposal of e-waste.
