Leipzig (dpa / sn) - Saxony's Environment Minister Wolfram Günther sees the Leipzig test run for a repair bonus as a success. The evaluation of the pilot project showed that 682 products were repaired, the Greens politician said on Wednesday. The majority were electrical and electronic devices, but bicycles and leather goods were also brought in for repairs. The project aims to help reduce waste.
In the summer, the Free State made around 42,500 euros available for the Leipzig project. The State Environment Agency will shortly present a final report.
