  • Description


    We run a non-profit cooperative, which is part of a larger Volunteering Association, that has been operating for the last 30 years in Scandicci, on the outskirts of Florence, Italy.
    At present 13 people work in it, either employed or on a volunteer basis and periodically work-camps take place here for young people from all over Italy.
    The core activity of the Centre is that of collecting and receiving goods of all kinds that people want to get rid of and give to the Centre, which are then put back in circulation through sale as used material. Goods range from old furniture and appliances to linens and clothing, toys, books and miscellaneous objects.
    We are seeking for young adults interested in working with us and learn about what it actually means to be involved in a recycling and re-use centre.

  • Hébergement


    Accommodation within the Centre, with private bedroom and shared kitchen and living-room, with people working in the center. The accomodation is located in a building just close to the shop, where the workawayers will stay alone during the evening. That's why we prefer a couple. The volunteers will have to cook for themselves with their own expenses, unless occasionaly at lunchtime when we stay together the cooperative offers the food.
