E-waste is a complicated toxic waste that causes additional carbon emissions during disposal. In the perspective of carbon neutrality, responsible and efficient e-waste management is a worldwide concern. Nevertheless, any successful E-waste management strategy depends on the consumption and disposal habits of the general public. We made the effort to perform a thorough analysis of the global environment & identify the methods used by users of various countries to deal of the electronic trash while keeping in mind the particularities of each user’s disposal behavior and consciousness in each location. We notice considerable disparities in consumer disposal habits for e-waste both “across” and “within” wealthy and developing nations. The study goes on to discuss the complications in the system for managing e-waste in particular light of the numerous related connotations that have an impact on consumer disposal behavior and knowledge. Therefore, in order to develop E-waste management policies and effectively to solve current E-waste situation, a particular country may benefit from learning from worldwide experiences on consumers’ E-waste disposal behavior and knowledge.
