Factsheet Circular economy The Municipality of The Hague
This project comprises two pilots, that flow from the Green Deal. The first is the tender for the construction of a waste and recycling centre, which was delivered in late 2016. Sustainable, partly reused material was used. In using such material the municipality also wanted to stimulate the centre's users to start thinking about the reuse of raw materials. The second pilot is a circular tender process for 72,000 m2 of flooring for various locations. (June 2017)
The Municipality of The Hague wanted to put Circularity on the agenda, but chose not to set any concrete goals and deadlines at this time. The municipality first wanted to examine current initiatives to which the municipality could connect and initiatives it wished to establish itself. For the two tender processes, an initial investment was made to increase knowledge about circular procurement.
