DenCity is a Swedish research project that develops innovative solutions for sustainable and highly efficient passenger and freight transport in densely populated cities. It is a collaborative project between industry, academia and society in three phases. One pilot in this project has been to design a barge as a floating recycling centre. In autumn 2019, the first trial was performed on the river in central Gothenburg. During a seven weeks period, more than 2,500 people visited the floating recycling centre. It was great interest for this service, and it has already been decided that the barge will continue to run for another test period later in 2020. Maybe it will become a permanent part of the city recycling system.
