Abstract


The evolution of e-waste management policies from 2016 to 2023 signifies a profound shift from initial regulatory responses to a comprehensive, holistic approach. Initially centered on increasing collection rates and regulating disposal methods, policies in 2016 aimed at addressing the growing electronic waste issue. However , by 2023, policies had evolved significanly. They now emphasized holistic sustainability, incorporating technological advancements, global collaboration, consumer awareness, and environmental impact reduction. The shift entailed embracing circular economy principles and advanced technologies, such as AI and IoT, to adapt to evolving electronic devices. Notably, 2023 policies sought standardized global regulations, stressing accountability across the product lifecycle and encouraging responsible disposal methods. This transition reflected a paradigmatic change from reactive measures to proactive, integrated strategies. The focus moved beyond merely managing e-waste to fostering a global ethos of sustainability, innovation, and responsible consumption, marking a transformative era in electronic waste management.
