The students of the Governmental Institute of Industrial Training (ITI) Berhampur created an E-WASTE “ROBO” 30 feet high and 3 tons spreading the message of reconnecting with Mother Earth by being responsible for the scientific management of electronic waste (e-waste). It is the tallest electronic waste sculpture in the country, made and designed by ITI’s electrician, electronics and painter trainees.
The sculpture is made of electronic waste such as electronic toys, PCB, printer, printer cartridge, RAM, keyboard, mouse, monitor, mobile, CD player, TV, VCR, etc. Electronic waste used in the making of the sculpture was collected in the town of Berhampur.
