The objectives of this research were to indicate the level of the factors affecting e-waste management and the relationship between the factors affecting e-waste management in the southern border provinces. This study was quantitative research. The sample was randomly selected from 400 people in Yala, Pattani and Narathiwat provinces. The research instrument was the questionnaire. The statistics used descriptive statistics, including frequency, percentage, mean and standard deviation and inferential statistics, including Pearson product moment correlation coefficient and multiple regression analysis. The results of the factors affecting e-waste management found that people having the perceived information was at a low level. In contrast, the knowledge and attitude in e-waste management were high level. The practice in e-waste management was at a moderate level. The relationship between the factors affecting e-waste management in the southern border provinces found that the perceived information (B=.060, t=3.599, p-value=.000) and attitude (B=.099, t=3.182, p-value=.002) on the e-waste management had a positive relationship to the practice with the e-waste management in the southern border provinces (p-value < 0.01).
