StEP: E-waste country study EthiopiaStEP, 2013: The study shows that the use of many types of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) in Ethiopia is mostly restricted to urban centres as the lack of electricity and purchasing power in rural communities often hampers the use of devices such as TVs, refrigerators and computers. Nevertheless   these rural communities do make use of battery-powered devices such as torch lights and radios. Thus e-waste generation in Ethiopia reflects the existing rural-urban disparities with small e-waste volumes in rural areas (predominantly waste batteries   radios and torch lights) and a much broader e-waste mix in urban communities. 48
