Though Nigeria us one of the many countries in Africa that have ratified the Basel convention, there are no e-waste-specific policies or regulations. Nigeria has however started enforcing the regulations by the country's environmental regulations agency for e-waste control. Despite this effort, 71,000t of UEEE were imported annually into the country via Lagos. Around 69% were stuffed in cars, buses, and trucks imported via roll-un/roll-off mode. These came mainly from ports in Europe including Germany (28%), UK (24%), Belgium (13%), and The Netherlands (12%). UEEE import in containers with vehicles came from ports located in the USA (32%), Spain (32%), UK (9%), China (6%), and Morocco (5%).
Around 80% of UEEE imported in containers was clean and undamaged, at least around 19% of devices were non-functional, with the highest being LCD-TVs and displays, refrigerator and air conditions.

In 2016, the Central Government notified the E-waste (Management) Rules, which now supersede the E-waste (Management and Handling) Rules, 2011. The 2016 Rules came into force from October 1, 2016. A key highlight of the 2016 Rules is the concept of Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR). Under this, producers of electrical and electronic equipment have register and then have mandatory targets to collect e-waste that they generate and to ensure that it channelized to authorized recyclers.

In March 2018, the Rules were amended and the target was reduced to 10 per cent for 2016-17 (as against 20 per cent). This year’s target (2017-18) remains 20%. This target progressively goes up to 70 per cent in the seventh year. In EU, the targets range from 55-80%.

Environmental effects of e-waste: The toxic materials from electronic devices are released into bodies of water, groundwater, soil and air, affecting both land and sea animals. When you throw out your e-waste they wind up in landfills, causing toxic materials to seep into groundwater
