REUSEMED (ex MEDUSES) Mediterranean Basin Reuses


Titre : REUSEMED (ex MEDUSES) Mediterranean Basin Reuses

Région/Pays : Méditerranée

Date/ Durée : 2020 -2022

The Mediterranean area faces, on the one hand, a significant waste production and landfilling, and on the other hand, the production of huge quantities of reusable goods prematurely disposed for recycling, consequently maintaining the old linear economy of “produce, use and throw away”. With the aim to promote the culture of reuse for environmental sustainability, green employment and solidarity, REUSEMED proposes to create municipal networks based on reuse circuits for home appliances, furniture, books, clothes, Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment and food. To set up the networks, 4 cities in Spain, Italy, Jordan and Tunisia will design and test composting installations, food collection points in markets, repair and reuse centers, reuse corners in shops and repairing cafés. Moreover, an APP solution will interconnect managers and users of the different circuits. Even if promoted by the local administrations in charge of waste management counting with the involvement of local stakeholder organizations, it is expected that the reuse networks will become self-sustainable in the mid-term, when revenues out of the sales of repaired products can finance the human resources and the maintenance of the infrastructures.
