In the municipality of Sakiet Ezzit in Tunisia, a collaboration between various organizations and stakeholders within the project REUSEMED has resulted in the creation of seven reuse circuits for various types of waste.

These circuits include food, clothes, baby toys, home appliances, Waste from Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE)s, books and papers, and banderoles. The goal of these circuits is to increase the amount of waste that is reused and reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfills.

One of the main features of these circuits is the involvement of the community. For example, the food circuit will be piloted in the El Ons region near the university restaurant, and individual composters will be provided to citizens of the Sakiet Ezzit region to help with the composting process.

The clothes and baby toys circuits will be implemented through events such as the “Weekend of REUSE” and “A Night of REUSE,” which will be held during the sales period and the month of Ramadan, respectively. These events will allow for the collection and sorting of reusable waste, which will then be redistributed by local associations.
