As one of the major waste streams towards the global environment, waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE), also called e-waste, is a huge problem needed to solve. Different countries are using various types of strategies and management to ensure the WEEE is limited to the minimum effect on the environment. Using China and the United States as the typical countries to disclose the action different countries have taken towards the management of e-waste. The legislations of e-waste policies are implemented in many countries which the major e-waste produced countries are considered in this paper to form the comparison between those countries. Most countries in Europe are showing more attention towards the management of WEEE and countries such as India or Brazil are less focused on the recycling of WEEE. The major e-waste produced countries tend to have more moderate management to balance the economy and the environment.
