The Current State of Global E-Waste In 2018

The Current State of Global E-Waste In 2018

Submitted by • September 30, 2020

The amount of worldwide e-waste generation is expected to be 49.8 million tons in 2018 with an annual 4-5 percent growth. Only 6.5 million tons of total global e-waste generation in 2014 was treated by national electronic take-back systems. The United States generated 11.7 million tons of e-waste in 2014. Late last year, the United Nations University (UNU) released its annual report on the state of e-waste, known as the Global E-Waste Monitor Report. Every year, the UNU works with the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and the International Solid Waste Association to collect data needed to compile this report.
