Although considerable efforts are being made by many Governments and other entities in tackling waste-related problems, there are still major gaps to be filled in this area. The current practices of e-waste management in Uganda suffer from a number of problems such as informal recycling, inadequate legislation, lack of awareness from the stakeholders and limited government efforts. In addition to these e-waste management challenges, this paper also discusses the strategies to address this emerging problem in Uganda, considering related efforts in some regions such as Asia-Pacific, Europe and elsewhere in Africa. The paper mainly focuses on Mobile phone e-waste, with emphasis on safe disposal and recycling strategies.
