Local recycling and reuse centers


The project is an innovation project aimed at developing knowledge about how local recycling and reuse centers can work as meeting places and learning centers for reuse, hazardous waste recycling, sharing, repair and creative reuse. During the project, four local recycling centers and reuse centers in four districts are developed, tested and evaluated with socioeconomic differences and different conditions in Gothenburg. The businesses will grow through cooperation with financiers, officials and residents. The project will develop valuable knowledge of local recycling and reuse centers, which is important for similar investments to be done elsewhere in Sweden.
