Abstract

The consumption of electronic equipment will increase in line with the growth of population and technological development in electronic equipment. Unfortunately, large consumption of these electronic products leaves the consequences of waste from electronics that are no longer used. Moreover, coupled with the fast obsolete of electronic equipment, the generated of WEEE is increasing faster. WEEE that accumulates can cause problems to human life, so efforts are needed for the recycling process. But to do a good recycling process, it is necessary to do WEEE collection continuously, so that the input of the process is stable. This study aims to conduct an analysis of consumer behavior in disposing of WEEE. This study was conducted using online and manual surveys. Respondents in this study were 403 people in 6 provinces of Java and data processing was carried out by statistical analysis especially chi-square. The results of the study revealed several finding of disposing behavior. After the Chi-Square test, it was found that the demographic factors of the respondents that had a significant effect on the habit of disposing of WEEE include: marital status, position at home, and location. Furthermore, demographic factors that have a significant effect on respondents' knowledge of WEEE include: gender, age, education, occupation, income, location, residence ownership, and residence size.
