A unified telecommunications industry voice on e-waste consultation and a forum for collective approaches to industry management of e-waste

What it is

The purpose of the Electronic Waste Working Party is to:

  • The Working Party is to manage a unified and effective telecommunications industry voice in response to consultation on electrical and electronic waste (e-waste).
  • The Working Party is also exploring the feasibility of working collaboratively to develop recycling programmes that allow members to minimize costs and impacts, while also minimizing environmental harm and maximizing volumes of recycling.
