Bratislava’s municipal waste management company, OLO, already enables people to bring in some items that they do not need any more but which are still in good shape to serve somebody else. But the list of reusable items is limited by respective permissions and OLO can only pass them on to charitable organisations. OLO is now working on an extension of this list as well as the outlet channels.

“We want to start by strengthening the circular economy at waste-collection yards,” Linda Golejová of OLO told The Slovak Spectator.

For now, those interested can take items they do not need any more and that are suitable for further use to OLO’s waste-collection yard at Stará Ivánska Cesta 2, open Monday to Saturday between 8:00 and 18:00.
