Dear Subscriber,

We hope this email finds you well. The temperature is cooling and it is finally beginning to feel like fall in Osaka, Japan.

The E-waste manual is one of our continuous efforts to assist member countries on Integrated Solid Waste Management (ISWM) and their cities to develop their inventories and WEEE(Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment)/E-waste management systems. The third manual of this series E-waste Volume III - WEEE/e-waste “Take back system” was created to serve as a guidance for the practitioners and decision makers in understanding, planning, designing and implementing WEEE/E-waste take-back schemes at a national and local level. This manual serves as a living document and practitioners and policy makers as well as those who are highly interested in this topic are encouraged to provide their feedback, which will be incorporated into the next edition.

Read more and download the manual here.

We hope to hear from you. Thank you and best regards,
