Background: The electrical and electronics sector has become one of the rapidly developing and growing sectors, as a result of technological and economic developments. Rapid changes in consumer demands and needs have increased the use of electrical and electronic equipment and shortened product life cycle, resulting in an increase in equipment waste. Therefore, recovery alternatives for electrical and electronic equipment waste should be considered subject. The aim of this study is to evaluate the recovery alternatives of electrical and electronic wastes and to determine the best.

Methods: Multi-criteria decision-making techniques used to select the best among multiple alternatives have many application areas. The selection of recovery alternatives based on criteria includes some fuzzy topics. For this reason, the fuzzy logic approach was used to evaluate the answers of the decision makers and the fuzzy numbers obtained were analyzed by PSI method and criterion weights were determined and alternatives were listed.

Results: According to results of analysis, social responsibility and environmental awareness criteria have the highest values for selecting recovery alternatives. In addition, remanufacturing, regeneration and recycling take the first place among the alternatives.

Conclusions: Recovery of electrical and electronics waste is an important subject in current conditions. Alternative methods vary from reuse to incineration, but correct choice of recovery techniques rely on multi criteria and decision should be made adhering to them.

Keywords: recovery, multi-criteria decision-making, fuzzy, preference selection index
