Ecomairie – the first online recycling centre !

 
Initially launched on the perimeter of the Urban Community of Dunkirk, Ecomairie is a digital tool allowing individuals from the same region to give or sell an object which they do not use any more before it becomes surplus to requirement and ends up being thrown out.
 
Conceived as a website of proximity between individuals allowing the donation and sale of unused objects, doomed to end in the waste, Ecomairie is now deployed in many municipalities in France.
 
This device helps regions reduce the costs entailed by waste processing and create a local network bringing many stakeholders together (social and solidarity economy structures, social housing providers, repairers, cultural stakeholders…).
