WEEE Scuplture

Old electronics ‘spark’ imagination of Arundel based artist

Posted on 3 September 2018

Last month, our very own Waste Prevention Advisor, Adam Swain worked alongside Arun District Council to unveil a cormorant sculpture made entirely from old electrical items.

Like a phoenix from the flames, ‘Sparky’ stands at 170cm in height and all the items used to make the sculpture were gathered through Arun’s kerbside Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) collections. 

The cormorant is made up of a number of waste electrical items including broken shavers, hair straighteners, kettles, old remote controls, and computer and printer parts.

Currently both Arun District Council and Crawley Borough Council collect small waste electrical items alongside their normal collections. To find out more information visit the dedicated pages on their website:

Residents in other areas of the county can take their electrical equipment to a Household Waste Recycling Site for recycling.
