The Reuse Centre transforms over 4 million old products into new products. Over 50 million kg natural resources are saved every year.

Besök ett av Finlands största återvinningsvaruhus i Knektbron / Nihtisilta 18.4 kl. 9.30-11

Under rundvandringen (på finska) har vi möjlighet att bekanta oss med olika verkstäder, se hur bl.a. cyklar, möbler och elektronikutrustning restaureras. Vi får också se Plan B:s (Återvinningscentralens egen kollektion) nya produkter, som skapats genom att man återvunnit material.

Vi får en inblick i hur 4 miljoner saker årligen får en chans att återanvändas och hur Återvinningscentralen sparar 50 miljoner kg naturresurser varje år.

Time to vote for our new library card!

The design competition has reached its next phase as the jury has selected the final four entrys. Now we need your help in deciding on which one of these will be Arcada's new library card. You can cast your vote till 16.12. A big thanks to all of those who were engaged in the competition!

Voting is now closed.

Below you can find the jury's comments on the final four.

A – The green color reflects the library’s existing choice of colour in a positive way. The design’s arrangement makes a good flow.
