Abstract
E-waste recycling in China has become formally industrialised by dedicated recycling enterprises as well as legally regulated by measures and laws. Financial resources are created by a unique taxation system in order to reimburse and foster certified recycling activities, whilst informal activities, such as collecting, refurbishing, and recycling for material recovery, exist on a large scale and are attractive due to increasing e-waste volumes and valuable metals contained within. Many of the informal activities are a good source of income, being tailor-made for the way e-waste is managed in China and not posing a risk to human health or the environment. In contrast, some practices can be very harmful and extremely inefficient. Since a formal financing mechanism has been established, a variety of improvements could be introduced: some informal activities could be gradually formalised; jobs that were part of a shadow economy and harmful could be upgraded, and inefficient and illegal practices could be discriminated from those that create prosperity and income.
