58 technicians and craftsmen have set up a network to fix objects to limit the amount of waste in Vienna. A van drives through the city to pick up the equipment and take it back to its owner once it has been repaired. This service has now been extended to other cities in the country and has set up a hotline. It also organises information campaigns for the public. Thanks to this initiative, 50 000 repairs were completed in 2005 which means that 600 tons of waste were avoided.
