The Wasted City & WASTED in Media

WASTED and The Wasted City have been grabbing the attention of media the world over.

It’s been a big and busy year for CITIES. The new and improved, fully digital phase of WASTED has now been rolled out including plastic-, textile-, paper- and glass waste. Our network of Rewarders and Neighbours are growing at an explosive rate. It’s never been easier than ever to get rewarded for separating waste! So, are you living in Amsterdam? Become a WASTED member today! What’s more, in May 2017, our second publication ‘The Wasted City’ was released. Circular cities cannot grow in isolation. Thus, ‘The Wasted City’ features insights from top circular thinkers and experiences from initiatives from all over the world that are embracing the ideas of circularity from Seoul, to Spain, to Chicago. You can get a copy for yourself here.

We fully embrace the idea of people-centered development into the core of our commitment to circular city making. We’re busy making circular and less wasteful cities a reality; Check out what the world has been saying about us below.

We’ve put together a collection of the media coverage Wasted City and WASTED have been getting, and you can find screenshots, pictures, quotes and links below.

Moestuintjes op een vuilnisbelt, daarmee maken we de stad niet circulair (Translated: Food waste does not make our cities circular)

“[s]ystematically integrating the production chain requires a more consistent and courageous economic, urban and environmental policy. Circularity provides a substantial vision on the political, cultural and economic transition of our society. For this reason, it requires an equally serious vision of structural change.”

In Bureau de Helling. By Michiel Stapper (Geograaf en filosoof)

It’s Not Just Money that Makes the World Go Round

This model in which an economic system becomes a springboard for positive processes is also the one developed by CITIES Foundation, in collaboration with the municipality of Amsterdam, with the Wasted project. In operation on the territory of the Dutch capital since 2015, this mechanism is designed to foster and incentivize the act of recycling.
