Project Info

„Reuse“ is a core objective of the new Waste Framework Directive (WFD). “Preparation for re-use” was introduced as a new form of waste treatment with the aim to produce second hand products out of waste. Therefore the WFD suggests the member states to create and foster „accredited repair and re-use-centres and networks”.

Repair and re-use are important means to increase sustainable consumption positively. The challenge of the project is to turn the re-use-sector to a core segment of waste management and to bring it on a broader mainstream to meet the goals of European environmental policies and regulations.
