Electronic waste (E-Waste) has been a major problem not only in Malaysia but the to the whole world. The huge amount of e-waste is due to technological development that is growing rapidly. On the other hand, the buying powers around the world have increased gradually which permit user to buy more and more new electronic products. The result is, old product being dispose irresponsibly which would harm the human and environment. There are countless methods designed to control the problem such as laws, awareness program and well-designed electronic waste management system. Unfortunately, the methods seem not helping. The situation is more severe when the household group users were not well-aware of this problem. To improve the collection rate of e-waste from the household group, a web-application that operates with Location-Based Service functionality will help household users to easily locate recyclers or collectors and dispose e-waste at the appropriate place. With household users as the client or user of the application, this project aimed to help e-waste collectors (scrap metal collectors, the second-hand / repair shops, and the DOE licensed e-waste contractors) to be more reachable by most of household users. The web-application functions as an intermediate between household users and e-waste collectors. It will help users to locate and suggest a route to collector’s location. As the project goes, the deliverables would be in web-based application. The methodology to develop the project is using feature driven development. Finding have shown there are yet to be any web application in Malaysia that provide e-waste collection center locator that would create a platform for user to easily recycle e-waste.
