With effect from 1 July 2021, the management of regulated consumer e-waste (e.g. Information and Communications Technology (ICT) equipment, large appliances, batteries, lamps and solar photovoltaic panels) comes under the Extended Producer Responsibility system (please refer to Table A under “Regulated Electrical and Electronic Product” here).
The National Voluntary Partnership (NVP) will continue to cater for non-regulated used household electrical/electronic products such as small household appliances, electronic toys and gaming consoles. Under this NVP, industry partners are invited to spearhead repair/recycling programmes for non-regulated used electrical/electronic products, with support and recognition from the NEA. The partnership aims to:
- provide more convenient avenues for repair of non-regulated electrical/electronic products, such as small household appliances;
- provide more convenient recycling points for the public; and
- build public awareness of reuse/recycling avenues for non-regulated household electrical/electronic products.
Participation in this partnership is voluntary.
We are pleased to work with the following partners under the NVP.
