REUSEMED in Jordan promotes the reuse circuits to other regions


The REUSEMED project will help embed the practice of reuse in new policies throughout Jordan. This was precisely the objective of the capitalization meetings that took place early October 2022 in the four target municipalities (Greater Madaba, Greater Irbid, Greater Karak and Greater Jerash).

Following the meetings, REUSEMED project managers in the country praised the fact that in the four municipalities they had extensive experience and expertise in sorting, recycling and reuse of solid waste.

At the meetings, REUSEMED managers presented the goals and results of the project in Jordan. In addition, suggestions were collected from the different municipalities to promote the popularization of reuse in the country.  Among them, the possibility of adding the municipalities to the project's app or offering them facilities to implement their own apps with specialized companies was studied. Options for involving the municipalities in the five reuse circuits built in New Deir Allaa were also assessed.

REUSEMED proposes to create municipal networks based on reuse circuits for home appliances, furniture, books, clothes, Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment and food. To set up the networks, 4 cities in Spain, Italy, Jordan and Tunisia will design and test composting installations, food collection points in markets, repair and reuse centers, reuse corners in shops and repairing cafes.
