“The object of the fund is to provide funds to support the management of e-waste on human health and the environment. The sources of the fund include moneys approved by Parliament, fees and charges levied by the Agency in respect of items specified under the Fifth Schedule and any other moneys approved by the Minister for Finance,” the report stated.

The bill, according to the report, is divided into two parts- the first one seeks to deal with hazardous wastes, their disposal and to also domesticate the Basel Convention on Trans-boundary Movement of Hazardous Wastes.
