Nuñez Acosta, E. (2018). INCyTU Note 8 Electronic waste

At the same time, they also contain materials that are very valuable, so their recovery is a profitable economic and a good environmental practice. There are examples in the world that show how it is possible to integrate the formal and informal sectors to optimize their management, which results in economic benefits and reduces the environmental impact.
