Why waste a recycling station?

April 10, 2018 - April 11, 2018

Take part in our next “Match & Create” and join in for two cross-disciplinary innovation workshops that can expand your business area and network.

As resources becomes scarce, waste is really not waste anymore. Re- and upcycling transforms waste into a valuable asset. And contributes to an attractive and sustainable city.

Clearly, the recycling station of the future is far more than a wasteland with “five half-empty containers and a lot of confusing signs”.

Initiated by ARC (Amager Ressource Center – a major utility for waste management in Greater Copenhagen) this Match Co-create will focus on the unexploited potential for reuse of materials and at the same time improve customer experience and awareness related to waste management.

The aim of the two-day workshop is to allow for radical innovation on how to design recycling stations that are integrated in the city, that are highly efficient to operate and yet allow for world class reuse and customer satisfaction.



Central keywords and topics to be explored are: 

• New principles for sorting and re-use
• Up- and recycling
• Circular economy
• Logistics and value chain optimization
• Wayfinding
• Nudging and customer experience
• Sensoring and IOT
• Integration of waste handling in dense high-value areas


Participation is free of charge. All participants must attend both workshops.
Please note that there are limited seats available. You can apply for participation by sending an email to Mie Wittenburg on match@bloxhub.org
