Online household e-waste collection services are emerging as new solutions to disposing household e-waste in China. This study aims to investigate the adoption of online household e-waste collection services in China. Based on the previous technology diffusion theories (e.g., TAM, UTAUT), a research model with six research hypotheses was proposed in this research. The research model was empirically tested with a sample of 203 users of online household e-waste collection services in China. The results indicated that five of the six research hypotheses were significantly supported. And the most significant determinant for the behavioral intention to use online household e-waste service was effort expectancy. However, facilitating condition did not have significant impact on users’ behavior of using online household e-waste collection services.
