In another story, young contemporary artist, art collector, and dealer, Joseph Awuah-Darko, has designed a clock out of waste recovered from Agbogbloshie in Accra, Ghana.

The co-founder of Agbogblo.Shine Initiative decided to use his artistic talent to develop a programme to sustainably manage the waste when he first saw the piles of circuit boards, wires, and plastics at the commercial district on the outskirts of Ghana's capital.

In 2017, while enrolled at Ashesi University in Accra, he introduced the project with fellow student Cynthia Muhonja to encourage people working at Agbogbloshie to turn waste into high-end furniture instead of burning it.
