Abstract: To achieve a good rate of e-waste collection and recycling, it is of great importance to ensure the cooperation of end-users. This study aims to seek the determinants that influence household willingness and their favourite collection patterns towards e-waste recycling by using the logistic regression model as an analysis tool. The findings pinpoint that recycling motivations, recycling awareness, and some demographic socio-economic factors positively affect the willingness of recycling involvement. Contrastingly, recycling constraints are proved to have statistically negative effects on household recycling engagement. Regarding the collection methods, door-to-door and curbside pick-up services are the most favoured options amongst households for handing their e-waste to formal collectors, while making drop-off at regional collection centres and drop-off at retailer shops are the least preferred choices, respectively. The newly explored highlights may provide suggestions to policy-making bodies in getting closer to gain a higher e-waste collection target and recycling rate.
