Share of e-waste to be properly recycled in Africa 2019, by sub region

In 2019, four percent of e-waste in Southern Africa was officially documented for collection and proper recycling. This was the highest share throughout Africa. However, due to insufficient e-waste legislation on the continent, this is behind the volume of e-waste recycled in Europe.

Many developed nations send their e-waste to Africa, often illegally. The Agbogbloshie dump located in the West African nation of Ghana is one of the world's largest e-waste sites.
