|Legislation on hazardous waste disposal exists in Azerbaijan, covering healthcare waste but not e-waste. However, funds and human resources are needed in order to enforce regulations and meet legal requirements in waste management. Hazardous waste management at the societal level of waste-generating industries and consumers, such as waste s egregation, needs to be improved. Coordination between responsible institutions is also generally poor regarding the waste stream. As a future direction, a scientific framework, including technical guidelines on hazardous waste management, should be developed. This should cover especially e-waste given that specific regulations are currently non-existent.
