The Infrastructure

The recycling site must be divided into several areas, separating activities from one another. Ideally, the site should have (at least) a storage room,a courtyard, a workshop and an office to welcome clients and manage the activity. The dimensions required for those various areas may vary according to the production volume contemplated. For instance, if most supplies come from abroad, the site must provide space to sort and store the contents of containers. Also, the subsets potentially fit for reuse must be stored in closed premises, where they are protected against bad weather.

The plan below shows a site with a 300 m² storage room, a 200 m² courtyard and a 100 m² workshop. Ten to fifteen employees can work in such premises.
