Abstract: The Internet of Things (IoT) plays a huge part in the current Fourth Industrial Revolution which turned out to be one of the fastest contributors towards technological development around the world including Malaysia. As good as it sounds, an emergence of new technology means increases in the number of digital devices which later contribute towards the rise of E-Waste or the possibility of “IoT E-waste” generation if they are not managed properly. Hence, this paper aims to investigate the stakeholders involved in managing a sustainable household IoT E-waste collection processes as well as the elements involved in developing a sustainable system to manage those wastes. The research adopts case study research method where three cases were studied and a total of six participants were interviewed, with two participants per case. Outcomes from the interview were transcribed and analyzed using an Atlas.ti software. The identified stakeholders involved and the elements for a sustainable waste system will contribute towards the development of a Sustainable Household IoT E-waste Management Guideline which particularly enables the policymakers to strategize on the planning, development, and implementation of IoT initiatives for the future of Malaysia household IoT E-waste management.
