RECOSI (Regional and European Co-Operative for Social Industry), a not-for-profit organisation that helps social enterprises operating in the area of reuse of IT, electrical and electronic equipment, has announced a three-year plan including the creation of 200 jobs in Ireland and expansion into Europe.
The company, and its partners hope to employ 20 people with a further 180 coming from a network of partners. The first such partner, The Green Emporium in Newbridge, Co Kildare, will open its first reuse centre this month employing 10, which it hopes to increase to 30 within a year. These enterprises in turn would generate social value through job creation, as well as commercial revenue and environmental protection.
Within 5 years, RECOSI hopes to become Europe’s largest Electronic and Electrical Equipment Asset Recovery organisation and provider of IT and electrical equipment for social enterprises.
