Urban REC 3 ENG small

Do you know that about 19 million tonnes of bulky waste is produced per year, 60% of it being landfilled? Although bulky waste is a challenging waste stream, we are far from a consistent approach at EU level to address this issue. Valuable products and materials are lost when they could be kept in the loop of product use and resource efficiency, in particular through reuse, repair and recycling.
 
After more than three years of hard work on identifying and testing solutions for bulky waste management, it is time for URBANREC partners to present their answers. Discover the outcomes of the project at URBANREC final conference on 6 November 2019 in Brussels, at the European Parliament. You will learn more about the results of regional pilots, involving in particular the region of Flanders and Warsaw Municipality, as well as legal recommendations to improve bulky waste related legislation, all that framed within the perspective of circular economy in cities. The event will highlight good practices related to reuse and selective collection strategies and will present the achievements made by industrial demonstrators for the valorization of materials like plastics, textile and wood.
