Watch: Print Your City turns recycled food containers into street furniture

The residents of Thessaloniki, Greece, can now recycle their plastic waste into 3D printed furniture for the city, using a new laboratory set up by Rotterdam studio The New Raw.

The Zero Waste Lab is the latest enterprise of The New Raw's plastic recycling initiative, Print Your City, established in collaboration with drinks brand Coca Cola.

It offers local residents a recycling facility for their plastic waste as well as the ability to choose what the waste is turned into, with a robotic 3D-printing arm that can transform the sorted plastic into street furniture.

Users can customise the furniture via a website, choosing between different colours and functionalities and also selecting which public space in the city they would like to see it in.
