Abstract [en]

Electronic waste is probably the fastest growing waste in the world today and therefore it is necessary that we have a functional recycling. All human activity generates waste and it is important that this is taken care of and processed in the best way possible. Due to economic reasons electronic waste is transported illegally to developing countries where metals from the products are recycled in a way that is harmful to the environment and to the people working with it, because electronic waste contain many dangerous substances such as brominated flame retardants, PCB and heavy metals. The purpose with this essay is to examine how the Swedish counties practice supervision to prevent illegal export of electronic waste at present, and how it can be more effective. To achieve this we did a survey amongst the 100 largest Swedish counties and also a conducted study. The results indicate that the counties practice supervision in different sites, for example at the recycling centers, for the most part by visiting them and checking their waste management and documentation. It is possible to conduct supervision more efficiently by additional unannounced visits, extended cooperation with other authorities and a clearer legislation. This requires more resources.
