E-waste is the impact resulting from the massive use of electronic goods in the information technology era. The increasing use of electronic goods resulted in increasing electronic waste.
This study aims to calculate the potential of generation and characteristics of e-waste, processing methods and potential economic value of electronic e-waste recycling in Sungguminasa City, Gowa Regency, South Sulawesi Province, Indonesia. The study was conducted in 14 sub-districts in Somba Opu district, the largest population district in Sungguminasa City with population of 157,448 people or about 1.67% of the population of South Sulawesi Province.
The research method is conducted by analyzing the data obtained through: survey, observation and interview to the head of household in Somba Opu District, household divided in 3 groups by monthly income level (high, medium and low) and obtained: e-waste characteristics, waste generation potential, processing method and potential economic value of recycled e- waste.
The analysis results of 37 types of electronic goods, 3 types of electronic goods with the largest percentage are: televisions, refrigerators, personal computers, namely: 26%, and 17%, 14% or respectively: 150, 98, and 80 units/year. The potential of e-waste generation in Somba Opu District: 801,8 ton/year. The traditional method of e-waste processing is “converted function” by 55% and then “repaired” by 19% and “stored” by 17%, while the least applied e-waste method is “discarded” with a percentage of 9%. The results of the economic potential analysis of e-waste recycling of the 3 largest electronic goods are: refrigerator US$ 32,439, computer US$ 45,994 and television US$ 76,254 (US$ 1,00 = IDR 14,000)
Key words: electronic / waste / management
