Electronic waste abbreviated as E-waste refers to electronic products that are no longer useful due to redundancy or breakage. E-waste management through rudimentary and risky methods has a hazardous effect on human health and the environment. Therefore, responsive legislative measures and cost-effective and environment-friendly technological solutions are required to address the barriers to efficiency in E-waste management. This paper helps in addressing these barriers by identifying and establishing relationships among the major challenges to the process of E-waste management. An analytical model is constructed by using Total Interpretive Structural Modeling (TISM) method to obtain the hierarchy of the identified challenges. The hierarchy is based on their interdependence and driving strength. The resulting model may serve as a framework for planning and analyzing policies of E-waste systems.
