The company E-Waste Systems, Inc. has made the decision to expand their company into Australia. They recently signed a contract with 1800eWaste, Australia’s leading e-waste management company that allows E-Waste Systems, Inc. to launch their new e-waste technology. At the moment, Australia is undergoing legislature changes, so the timing of their expansion is perfect. Australia is the 10th largest user of technology worldwide with a fast growth rate; therefore, their e-waste is multiplying three times the amount of the general e-waste standard. E-Waste Systems, Inc. and 1800eWaste hope that their collaboration will pressure legislators to pass stricter regulation laws on e-waste. The deal between the two company also involves the building of a state of the art waste recycling plant in Sydney.
Additionally E-Waste Systems, Inc. is making similar expansions and deals in places such as the Middle East, Europe, Africa, and India.
In general, e-waste has been an increasing concern around the world. The more developed countries partake in making stricter e-waste regulation laws the better. This way they may serve as a model for other countries who might have relaxed e-waste regulations or are looking to strengthen their standards.
