As the electronic devices production is increasing rapidly and the electronic industry grows exponentially, thus, the problem of e-waste increases all over the world. In this paper, the Egyptian perspective of electronic waste (e-waste) is discussed. The key reason behind uncontrolled e-waste in Egypt is the rapid development of innovation along with low production cost. As a result, huge amounts of e-waste are needed to be discarded every year whose disposal is a foremost concern. For tackling this problem of e-waste, e-waste management techniques such as recycling along with reducing play a significant role. These techniques also assist in establishing a circular economy. This paper introduces a statistic questionnaire on the generated e- waste in Egypt, along with presenting the paper recommendations for the e-waste issue.
