Making a career change, I’m committed to the resources sector and I have taken a mission to circulate products and materials at their highest value, underpinned by data analysis. Faulty electrical and electronic items are usually discarded as they are difficult and expensive to repair. The impact is environmental pollution and fewer products available in the secondary market for re-use. The Next Life project aims to collect repairable items from households, retailers, charities, waste management companies etc. and repair those items locally using local talents. The plan is to train people locally for repair jobs, especially those who are socially disadvantaged. The repaired items will be sold locally and surplus items sold country-wide.
