Back to overview

Using raw materials and products more economically and smartly requires something from all of us. It is important to reduce and even eliminate waste. Therefore, from 11 to 15 March, the Week of the Circular Economy, we organise company visits for residents in the municipalities of Gorinchem and Vijfheerenlanden.

Discover the recycling centres Opnieuw & Co, Kringloop Gorinchem and Het Goed and get an exclusive look behind the scenes! By encouraging re-use, we reduce waste and contribute to a more sustainable world. But did you know that recycling shops also provide social employment? And are you curious about the journey your brought items take before they are back in the shop?

An exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the thrift store

You are welcome to dive behind the scenes and learn more about the world of reuse, recovery and recycling. Together, we can make the life cycle of products longer and have a positive impact on our planet. Join us and discover how you can contribute to a circular economy.
