About Pop-up Reuse and Recycle

Pop-up Reuse is a mobile solution that focuses on facilitating reuse for the Stockholmers and reducing the amount of waste. Sometimes it can be difficult to know what can be reused and what to sort for recycling. The staff on site is there to teach how to do the right thing. Two specially designed containers are set up and everyone may submit items they want to get rid of. Both containers (one for submission and one for pickup) are manned during the days. During evenings and nights they are closed and locked.
