Roubaix – France logo

The city of Roubaix wishes to become a city dedicated entirely to zero waste. After having accompanied families associations, businesses and public services, the city of Roubaix wishes to continue its approach and offer support to VSEs and SMEs to enable the transition to a more sustainable economy. That is why the city of Roubaix has joined the European project “Upcycle Your Waste”, which will guide the city to accelerate this transition by working with other cities with the same vision.
