The Internet Market for Used Electronic Items in China

The Internet is becoming increasingly important in the e-waste sector. Both companies and individuals offer second-hand electronics for sale and sometimes even for free. Scrap metal dealers (operating both physically and virtually) can act as intermediaries in the collection of e-waste. Websites that offer second-hand goods, including electronics, for sale (e.g., Craigslist, Marketplace, Kapaza, Alibaba, ScrapMetal-Forum, Ebay, etc.) are common and widespread. Large quantities of scrap electronic goods, such as old computers, circuit boards, printers, and phones, are offered via the Internet.
