The Legal-Illegal Interface in E-Waste Collection & Transport

Illegal waste recycling poses a challenge to the legal waste business. The informal players in the e-waste business fall into several categories. Some are the so-called “waste tourists” who buy second-hand electronics and ship them to their relatives or business partners in developing countries. Another sector that plays a role in collecting second-hand electronics is charities. A third, more informal, way to collect and trade in discarded electronics is via the Internet, which is becoming increasingly important in the e-waste sector (Bisschop 2012).
