As industry association, eWASA works closely with all levels of government and have portioned itself as experts in the field of e-waste management. Both the Department of Environment (DEA) and Trade and Industry (DTI) agree that eWASA is ideally placed to manage the e-waste Take back system under the Extended Producer Responsibility requirement in the National Waste Act.
eWASA can at request of the Minister and/or industry prepare an integrated industry waste management plan for the industry ensuring that we can manage this waste stream effectively through an industry initiative while retaining control of the funds raised through a recycling fee to apply it effectively toward developing the e-waste management system. Once the National Waste Management strategy is in place (end 2010) the electrical and electronics industry will be expected to submit a voluntary plan within two years
Corporate and government clients need to ensure safe disposal of their equipment under the ISO 14000 requirement. As eWASA member, you can offer this service to your clients through our approved e-waste handler network.
