REFA's recycling centres
REFA's recycling centres are visited almost 900,000 times a year. 90% of the region's inhabitants are less than 10 kilometres from the closest recycling centre. 11 of REFA's 14 recycling centres are designed according to The REFA Model, where the recycling centre's many containers are positioned around a circular platform. Traffic on the platform is one-way. Users do not have to struggle with tall containers and heavy lifting, but can load their waste directly from the platform into the containers.
Each year, 68,000 tonnes of sorted waste are brought to REFA's recycling centres
