This paper presents a comparative study of the e-waste management systems between New York State (NYS) in the U.S. and Sweden in the EU. E-waste challengeshave escalated to become an important focus of waste stream in the last decade, especiallyin light of increasing legislations across the world. NYS, being the latest state to join theother 21 states in U.S. to pass an e-waste bill, is the subject to study for evaluating thepotential impact of the bill. Thus the first step is to benchmark the current NYS situationwith the existing Swedish system, the best performing one in EU. The system will becharacterized by 5 major categories for evaluation and analysis. The similarities,differences and possible outcomes for NYS bill are identified and stated here.
