Addressing informality in the WEEE value chain in Peru

Addressing informality in the WEEE value chain in Peru

This report has been developed as part of the Sustainable Recycling Industries (SRI) Project in Peru.

This report offers first an in-depth assessment of the informal E-waste recycling sector in Peru, describing its main ways of operation, its relevance and its relation with other actors in the value chain, focusing in the area of Lima. Finally, it describes the most successful set of measures that have been implemented by the waste management authorities, together with different actors in the value chain, to either inhibit E-waste from flowing into inadequate channels that encourage informal practices, or to create partnerships with the informal sector in order to maximize the inflow of material to formal channels, in mutually beneficial arrangements.
