Description

Complementerre38 obtains waste collection equipment, including end-of-life equipment, that is sold or donated, and gives it new life. In this way, the company provides a technical solution adapted to customer specifications that ensures the re-use of the equipment instead of it going to waste.

The company's vision is

  • to promote sustainable purchasing for communities and local authorities, as well as 
  • to avoid the need for unnecessary transportation and manufacturing of new products that can easily be replaced by old but functioning equipment.
