What is Resirkula?

Resirkula is a second- hand concept run by the municipality-owned waste management company Sirkula. The concept is as simple as it is genious: Second- hand concept stores are located right next to the recycling center. Customers at the recycling center can deliver reusable objects that they don’t want anymore to Resirkula, instead of throwing them in a container. The objects delivered will be distributed to the stores who can sell them as they are, repair them or upcycle them to something different.

Our goal is to produce less waste, save more reusable objects and raise their value by mending them. By doing this we make sure that more objects can last longer in a circular economy.   

The new recycling center at Kretsløpsparken opened 10th of february 2020. Resirkula and it’ s stores had it's official opening 13th of june 2020.
