The eDay New Zealand Trust was established in 2010 to promote the development and implementation of product stewardship schemes for electronic waste in New Zealand and Pacific Island countries. The Trust, previously known as the Computer Access New Zealand Trust (CANZ), was responsible for national eDay e-waste collection events, held annually throughout New Zealand from 2007 and piloted in the Cook Islands in 2010. The Trust believes that e-waste product stewardship should be mandatory and free to the consumer dropping off end-of-life equipment.
The Trust’s view is that voluntary product stewardship schemes will not work for e-waste and that central government must regulate to ensure compliance by all stakeholders. The Trust supports the Australian co-regulatory approach and advocate the development of something similar in New Zealand aligned with Australia.Tags: Asia Pacific, co-regulatory, Computer Access New Zealand Trust, Cook Islands, e-waste, eDay New Zealand Trust, electronics, Global Product Stewardship Council, GlobalPSC, member profile, members, New Zealand, Pacific Island, producer responsibility, product stewardship, voluntary
