Track what is made of your donations.
A system of kerbside bins that allow citizens to donate unused objects. Each unit generates a tracking code which allows donors to learn where the objects are taken to, what is made of them and their social/economic impacts along the way.
The Reuse Bin is the most visible interface between citizens/households and the Reuse Commons. Materials are taken to Transformation Labs to be assessed and reused. All data generated in the process is continuously fed into the Reuse Dataset.
"There are a few projects at council recycling centres where they will have what they tend to call a reuse cabin. So when you take your things in, they will say – have big banners up saying – ‘could this actually be reused? Put it in this cabin.’ And such-and-such community group will come and collect those things. So, like, a couple of really good ones, there's one called Moray Waste Busters, up near Inverness and they have a big site at the council recycling centre. So you go in and the first bit you come to is Moray Waste Busters. So if you've got anything that you think could be reused, you give it to them and then they have an onsite shop as well. So they will put stuff in the shop. So while you're there getting rid of stuff, you can also park up and go in and do your shopping. And they've got a section for books and a section for electrical items and a section for bikes and all different things. So, they’re really trying to push reuse. So it's only if they can't reuse it, then you move on to the recycling or the landfill bin."
