DGTL's resource street

Next to our traditional resource collection areas we added the resource street

At DGTL, waste becomes the resources for new products. As such, we have moved away from waste collection areas, which are typically tucked away behind-the-scenes, to a “Resource Street”, which is central for all visitors to see. The Resource Street consists of a recycle hub and a new technique called pyrolysis. The recycle hub works to separate all visitor waste, so the new “resources” can be picked up for further use. The pyrolysis installation turns bottle caps into oil, which in turn can be used to make new plastic. The most valuable component of the Resource Street is that it allows visitors to discover the value of their own waste and change the narrative from “waste as a problem” to “resources as a solution”.
