E-waste can be generated from various sources, including households, corporations, industries, and illegal shipments from other countries to China. The rapid growth in the rate of consumption and replacement of electronics intensifies the generation of e-waste and near-end-of-life electronics. However, e-waste management is different from general waste management because it contains both hazardous substances and valuable materials such as metals, glass, and plastics. E-waste is not collected by municipal waste management services; rather, it is commonly collected by individual waste collectors who supply e-waste to brokers. These brokers then link the e-waste collection channels with informal recyclers, thus facilitating the co-existence of both formal and informal e-waste management sectors in China.
