Waste of Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) is growing more than urban solid waste generating impacts for environment and human health. Due to development of Information and Communication Technology (ICT), the Higher Education Institutions (HIE) have adopted measures to correctly manage WEEE, as HIE contribute to growth of WEEE by replacing and/or disposing equipment to strengthen and satisfy institutional operations. The objective of this article is to propose an institutional framework related to Reverse Logistics (RL) for the management of RAEE. The Study of Times and Value Stream Mapping was conducted to establish the connection of agents involved in the management. Results show the potential HIE have to strengthen decision making process through RL obtaining economics and environmental benefits.
