CTC, in partnership with Community Reuse Network Ireland (CRNI), The Rediscovery Centre and The Eastern Midlands Waste Region, commenced a two year medium scale EPA research project on Quantifying and Qualifying the Reuse Sector in Ireland in March 2019.
The project looks into methodologies to assess and measure the Irish reuse sector. By analysing international best practice, the project team will develop an overview of good practices in other countries, draw lessons for Ireland, and identify gaps in the information that needs to be gathered.
To date, a set of project outputs have been developed:
Q2Reuse One-page Summary Document Q2Reuse Infographic
Q2Reuse Decision Tree Flowchart on Reuse Q2Reuse International Review Summary Report
