About Us

The EPR Waste Association of South Africa (eWASA) is a registered Producer Responsibility Organisation (PRO) with The Department of Forestry, Fisheries and the Environment (DFFE) for the Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE), Lighting and Paper and Packaging Sectors.

eWASA was originally established in 2008 to manage the establishment of a sustainable, environmentally sound e-waste management system for the country. Since then, we have been working with manufacturers, vendors and distributors of electronic and electrical goods and e-waste handlers (including refurbishers, dismantlers and recyclers) to manage e-waste, lighting waste and associated paper and packaging effectively.
