Electrical and electronic garbage that has reached the end of its useful lifespan is referred to as "e-waste." As technology develops, an immense quantity of e-waste is generated every day. Every year, several tones of e-waste must be disposed of. Thus, as it reduces solid waste issues and harm to the environment, e-waste in concrete is a concept of sustainable concrete. In this work, recycled copper, aluminum, and steel fibers from telecommunication and internet cables have been utilized to reinforce the fibers in M50 design mix concrete. Fiber’s act as a crack arrester and could significantly improve the characteristics of concrete if added.[6] These fibers were added to the concrete at weights of 0.5%, 0.75%, 1.25 percent, and 1.5 percent. Additionally, different fibers—30, 50, and 80—had differing aspect ratios. At the appropriate curing age, the compressive strength, split tensile strength, and flexural strength of fiber-reinforced concrete with varied aspect ratios were calculated and compared with regular concrete. According to the experiment's findings, 1.0% of e-waste fibers should be added to concrete in order to achieve the best compressive strength. The steel fiber's strength was 66.89 N/mm². The best result for split tensile strength was 1.50%, with 10.62 N/mm² in copper fibre. And In copper fibre, the optimal result for flexural strength at 1.50% strength was 10.87 N/mm².[9]
