A Memorandum of Understanding was signed between the MCCI and Ministry of Environment, Sustainable Development and Disaster and Beach Management on 26 February 2016 for the setting-up and operation of an E-Waste Management system in Mauritius.
As Electrical and Electronic waste or E-waste is one of the fastest growing solid waste in Mauritius, the Government has decided to adopt a national policy and strategy for an environmentally sound and efficient management of E-Waste in Mauritius. In this context, the Government will work in collaboration with the MCCI to pursue its objective.
It is against this backdrop that the MCCI will set up an Importers Responsibility Organization (IMPRO), which will be responsible for organizing the system for collection, transportation, recycling and exportation of E-Waste in Mauritius.
