Koopera Reusing Centre is the first comprehensive state plan in Spain for the collection and reuse of different kinds of goods, from clothes to books and appliances, envisioning zero waste together with social inclusion. Goods get collected, prepared for reuse and sold in the Koopera stores for an accessible price. In the Basque Country, a voice-recognition system has been implemented for the sorting of waste.
