E-waste  Producer Responsibility Organisation Nigeria (EPRON) is a non profit organisation set up by electrical and electronic producers in Nigeria. It is the first Producer Responsibility Organisation (PRO) for electronic waste in Nigeria.

We work with consumers and producers to ensure the safe management of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) to our health and environment. Our stakeholders also include accredited recyclers and collection centres, who implement our incentives buyback/recovery and recycling programme for consumers.

E-Waste is a term used to cover items of all types of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) and its parts that have stopped functioning or have stopped serving the purpose it was manufactured for. It is effectively any household item with circuitry or electrical components with power or battery supply. This covers TVs, computers, mobile phones, white goods (fridges, washing machines, dryers, etc.), home entertainment and stereo systems, toys, toasters, and kettles, among others.
