Sustainable Waste, raw Material and (Public) space management in the Rijk van Nijmegen, in other words DAR, is a member of Midwaste and ensures that public areas remain clean, intact and safe. Their employees are the ears and eyes of the neighborhood. In April 2018, we entered into a partnership with Midwaste, a cooperative association of regional waste and cleaning companies. Thirteen members, including DAR, are part of the collaboration. Together we strive for the most sustainable treatment and processing of textiles. 

By operating in a sustainable way, preventing decay and keeping employees, partners and residents intensively involved in everything they do, they give substance to their vision. With the core message: fresh. Their services are as broad as the term 'fresh' is. 

DAR keeps the region of  Nijmegen fresh. Private individuals, organizations and institutions make use of their services, but the municipalities of Berg en Dal, Beuningen, Druten, Heumen, Mook en Middelaar, Nijmegen and Wijchen are also affiliated.

Waste = raw material 
In a circular living environment we do not throw away what we no longer need, but use waste as raw material for something new. In the first quarter of 2021, DAR has already processed more than 77,000 kilos of textile in a circular way. This is a lot! Our goal is therefore to create the circular economy together with Midwaste by converting waste into raw materials and returning it to the chains. For us, it’s important to be transparent at the front of the process. That’s why textiles are always sorted per batch, for example. When the setup is perfected, we aim to have our end products sourced by municipalities and local markets.

We are very happy to work with DAR and look forward to what all the good things will bring us in the future!
