In Australia, the National Television and Computer Recycling Scheme (NTCRS) considers only waste televisions, computers, printers, and IT peripherals as e-waste. This study utilizes a combined Delphi-AHP approach to identify potential candidate products that are outside of the scheme. Besides, implementing the traditional AHP method, this study employed an AHP-rating model to minimize computation time in the approach. The results of the study reveal that seven evaluation criteria are crucial for product selection. From 47 initially selected products, 22 products are identified as priority products. Sensitivity analysis was performed based on the different weighting of the evaluation criteria. Potential future activities that need to be performed by the policymakers on the issue are also discussed in the light of the circular economy and environmental protection. This study will also help academics performing the approach, and subsequently, the AHP rating model for selecting/prioritizing alternatives that focused on multi-criteria decision-making problems.
