The project will draw on case study research to advance our understanding of reuse commodity chains, their societal benefits and contributions to a more sustainable circular economy. It will unpack the factors facilitating or inhibiting reuse and rigorous methods will be developed for
assessing the benefits of reuse organisations in terms of quantities of materials processed, employment, skills development and contributions to regional economic development.
