Final report on European approaches to Urban Resource Centres available


As part of the ambitions of the Partnership Action Plan, the working group dedicated to the action "Promote Urban Resource Centres for waste prevention, re-use and recycling" have now published a report based on 12 in-depth interviews with different local circular economy centres in Europe, also called "Urban Resource Centres". 

The report provides 12 different cases from European cities, all working to promote the circular economy by focusing on waste prevention, re-use and recycling within their city. The report shows both examples from public, public-private and private centres and provides a insight into the different approaches to a circular economy on a local level. 

The report points to specific barriers and success factors shared by the centres, and is available through this
