With the establishment of the re-use network we set this precious reality to enchance and develop it further with the aim of making Capannori european ‘capital’ of re-use. ‘InfoRiuso’ is a simple and useful help desk for citizens that everyone can contact to ask and recive informations on where to confer used objects guaranteeing them a second life and a new utility”.
