Sommer ist wieder Garten- und Balkonzeit. Wenn es dann am Abend einmal später wird, werden Lichterketten eingeschalten und sorgen für eine gemütliche Stimmung. Aber was passiert eigentlich mit kaputten Lichterketten? Energiespar- und LED-Lampen dürfen nicht in den Restmüll, denn sie enthalten neben gesundheitsschädigenden Stoffen wie Quecksilber auch wertvolle Rohstoffe, die recycelt werden können.

Repairing now pays off, several times over

 

Repairing is the best way to avoid waste. If something breaks down, the old device does not have to be disposed of immediately and a new one purchased. The multiple benefits of re-use are crystal clear: avoiding unnecessary waste, saving raw materials, creating jobs, promoting the circular economy and saving CO2. It is important to create awareness for this, and to offer alternatives to disposal.

 

Repair = resource conservation = environmental protection

In Austria, there are already numerous repair service opportunities and repair cafes where you can either make the repairs yourself, or have them carried out with expert support. The repair bonus recently introduced nationwide is also an effective way of creating awareness and motivation for conserving resources and avoiding waste. Per household and per year, 50 percent of the repair costs of an electrical appliance (capped at 200 euros) are subsidised. The financial subsidy can be claimed for repairing anything from smartphones to large electrical appliances, such as televisions, dishwashers, refrigerators and freezers or washing machines.

If half of the repair costs are refunded, this becomes a valuable alternative to buying new, which not only protects your wallet, but also the environment.

It’s easy to join in.  You will find detailed information about the repair reward HERE
