Abstract
A large amount of waste mobile phone has been one of key environmental issues in China as well as the whole world. To improve the recycling rates of waste mobile phones, it is necessary to investigate the influential factors of its recycling. This paper examines the disposal willingness of waste mobile phones for young consumers in Shanghai city, China. To this end, four treatment ways, i.e., storage, recycling, discarding and donation, are considered. The results show that more consumers in Shanghai prefer storing their waste mobile phones rather than recycling them. The influential factors are identified based on the survey analysis and policy suggestions for enhancing waste mobile phone recycling rate are also provided.
