Continuous development, keeping up with technology and increasing the production of multi-feature electronic devices are all factors that have increased the use of electronic devices all over the world. The accumulation of E-devices by individuals increases the amount of electronic waste that causes environmental pollution problems. Therefore, an innovative solution must be found that encourages people to give up old or damaged electronic items for recycling and benefit from their contents. An electronic waste collecting scheme that grants reward points to contributors and link the waste to recycling companies is suggested as an appropriate solution to attract people's attention. The design of the electronic waste (E-waste) collecting machine and developing a business model are the main aims of this project, where spreading such innovative projects in the country will further spread the idea of sustainability, preserve the environment, and reduce pollution resulting from the accumulation of electronic waste.
