In 2010, The United States generated over 3 million tons of Electronic waste, or "e-waste". E-waste is generated when electronics such as computers, cell phones, televisions and cameras are discarded as new technologies are developed. JEFRE worked with FAU to collect over 5000 sqft of e-waste and artistically recycled as a mural above to educate consumers of a growing hazardous byproduct of technology and development
The e-waste wall is located inside the lobby of Engineering East building. The benches are located in the plaza in front of the building.
Installed in 2010.
