A delegation of German Industry and Commerce in Nigeria has called on the Federal Government to adopt a national electronic-waste, e-waste, policy to aid the control of illicit importation of Used Electrical Electronic Equipment (UEEE) into the country.


This is coming against the background of the United Nations Industrial Development Organization, UNIDO, report that, about 1.1 million tonnes of e-waste (mostly PCs, air-conditioners, LCD-TVs, mobile phones, refrigerators) is generated in Nigeria annually, with about 40 percent generated within Lagos.
