Ever wondered what happens to all the waste electrical and electronic equipment you throw away during your lifetime? I'm talking keyboards, washing machines, tape decks, mobile phones, vacuum cleaners and the like.
To be honest, I've never really thought about it. I suppose most of us don't think about it. Which probably goes some way to explaining why this giant sculpture is on display at the Eden Project in Cornwall. WEEE man is made from the 3.5 tonnes of WEEE (waste electrical and electronic equipment) an average person living in the UK throws away during their lifetime. Impressive, eh?
