The importance of design for recycling of electronic and electrical equipment (EEE) will be shown by analysing environmental pressures, impending legislation, increasing disposal costs and business opportunities. Different institutions train their designers in a variety of ways to allow them to successfully carry out design tasks and increase the proportion of products that can be efficiently and economically recycled. Design tool that could be used in such cases is a set of design guidelines. The article gives the guidelines developed by the Manchester Metropolitan University, and examples of using some of them. The importance of this type of guidance is emphasized and it is shown how that can be applied. The paper also presents guidelines of Industry Council for Electronic Equipment Recycling (ICER). The ICER Guidelines provide a basis on which manufacturers can develop a design strategy specific to their company or to a particular product. They are generic and can be adapted for use in most sectors of the electronics industry. They have been produced to help concept designers and design engineers. They will also be useful for anyone with an insight into the design process, particularly those involved with marketing and procurement.
