In this study, the lifespan distribution of home electronic appliances (televisions, refrigerators, and washing machines) in Indonesia are investigated. The data to estimate lifespan distribution based on the questionnaire survey conducted on Java Island. The better fit distribution model is examined with comparing Log-likelihood, AIC, and BIC for each product. Weibull distribution is the better fit for lifespan distribution of televisions and Normal distribution is the better fit for lifespan distribution of refrigerators and washing machines based on result of model selection. The possession span is 8.67 years, 9.76 years, and 11.69 years for televisions, refrigerators, and washing machines, respectively. This study also investigates storage time that potential to be a barrier to increase the collection rate. The results show that there is an influence on the duration of storage time of home electronic appliances in Indonesia. To avoid that impact, the duration of storage time should be lowered by creating a collection center for e-waste.
