Malaysia occupies a strategic location in Southeast Asia, divided between two regions - Peninsular Malaysia and East Malaysia. The total area of ​​the country is about 330,803 Km2, located between 3 10 N, 101 42. Uncontrolled disposal of electronic waste can be harmful to human health and the environment because electronic waste contains toxic substances and heavy metals. However, if waste is managed properly, it can become a business opportunity that produces high returns because e-waste also contains valuable materials, such as gold, silver, platinum and palladium. There are problems faced by recovery facilities in achieving the goal of converting e-waste into source material. Issues include the supply of e-waste, the importation and coding of e-waste derived products, and finally the need to develop standards for e-waste treatment technologies to ensure the safety and sustainability of facilities. The issue of electronic waste is becoming an increasingly serious problem because it contains many toxic substances that can seriously harm humans and the environment. This problem is expected to worsen if serious efforts are not made to manage this electronic waste. The current study is an attempt to reduce the risks and solve the problems of electronic waste. For this purpose, use different tools such as LCA, MFA, MCA and EPR. On top of all that, no matter how well the policies are introduced and implemented, the key to success in terms of e-waste management in Malaysia is to develop environmentally designed devices, to properly collect e-waste, recover and recycle materials in safe ways, and dispose of e-waste with appropriate techniques, Preventing the transportation of used electronic waste. Electronic devices to developing countries, raising awareness of the impact of e-waste pollution on both users and manufacturers.
