Two centres for reuse and awareness-raising about waste have been launched at an opening ceremony in Budapest. The centres are the first of their kind in Hungary, and will combine the functions of a waste collection and reuse facility with additional space for public education actions. 

Two centres for reuse and awareness-raising about waste have been launched in Budapest, with operations officially kicking-off at an opening ceremony on 13 June, attended by WASTECOSMART Central Hungary partners. The centres are the first of their kind in Hungary, and will combine the functions of a waste collection and reuse facility with additional space for public education actions.

 

The primary concern and main goal of the reuse centres is to establish a state-of-the-art waste collection and processing service, which will enable the effective reuse of secondhand products.

 

On-site awareness-raising activities will help promote good waste management practices to the public, with lectures, workshops and interactive lessons planned, both in designated classrooms and outdoors.

 

The public got a first glimpse of the new facilities during the opening ceremony, for which guests paid a special ‘entrance fee’, to get into the spirit of reusing materials: attendees were asked to bring objects that they no longer use or need, but are still in good working order, so that they can be reused by someone else.
