Waste electric and electronic equipment in Jordan: willingness and generation rates
Waste generated from electric and electronic equipment (WEEE) is increasing due to the demand for information and communication technologies (ICT), rapid product obsolescence, coupled with rapid economic growth, urbanisation and technology advancement. Developed countries have reacted actively to manage this waste, while developing countries are still in the early stages of recognising this problem. This paper gauges Jordanian household WEEE awareness levels, their electric and electronic equipment (EEE) consumption patterns, and estimates the lifetime of EEE using questionnaire and interview methods. Based on these findings, the WEEE generation rate in Jordan is predicted.
