Willingness to pay for e-waste recycling: final report

Source: EPHC
"There is little incentive for businesses to provide e-waste recycling services, as the cost involved in collection and processing far outweighs the possible value of materials recovered. Given that community concern exists about the low level of recycling currently undertaken, this project's objective was to determine if that concern would translate into a willingness to pay (WTP) for higher levels of recycling achieved via government intervention."
