Electronics Disposal Efficiency (EDE)

Definition - What does Electronics Disposal Efficiency (EDE) mean?

Electronics disposal efficiency (EDE) is a performance metric used to evaluate the percentage of electronic disposals that have been completed in an environmentally responsible way. It is used to measure how well organizations dispose of their electronic equipment and waste once it is no longer in use or is depleted.

Techopedia explains Electronics Disposal Efficiency (EDE)

EDE was created by Green Grid to help organizations asses their disposal processes for electronic equipment. To calculate EDE, the total weight of the equipment that's being disposed of in a responsible way (such as through reuse or recycling) is divided by the total weight of all discarded equipment.

There are a range of options that Green Grid considers responsible, but most involve sending the electronic waste to an organization/entity that is certified and authorized to recycle or dispose of it properly.
