Reuse Month

Posted on 29th September 2020

Minister for Environment, Climate and Communications Eamon Ryan TD has officially launched Reuse Month 2020. Reuse Month also aims to highlight the value that can be found in everyday items and bring awareness to Ireland’s growing Circular Economy. 

This is the fifth year of the annual national waste prevention initiative which takes place throughout October, and aims to raise awareness about the benefits of reusing everyday items and materials that would otherwise go to waste. As part of Reuse Month 2020 events will take place all over Ireland, with emphasis this year on virtual workshops due to Covid-19 guidelines. 

Developed by Ireland’s three Waste Management Planning Offices, Connacht Ulster, Eastern Midlands and Southern Region, the focus of this year’s Reuse Month will be on creativity, reuse, repair, and upcycling. Flagship events will take place on October 8, October 15, and October 22, 2020 and all Reuse Month events are free of charge. The full list of Reuse Month events can be viewed here
