The Project



It is often not easy for people with disabilities to find a suitable job. The "miteinanderleben service gGmbH" has remedied this situation with an innovative project: "Lego - socially playful recycling" is the name for the idea of offering people with physical, psychological or mental disabilities and reduced resilience an individually suitable job. The aim is to create a larger stock in order to sell the Lego bricks again afterwards. In the long run, new construction kits may be developed. For the special needs of the employees, barrier-free storage systems and individually suitable workplaces were created. The team is pleased about donations of Lego parts.

We buy used Lego® all over Germany in bulk. In addition, many people support our project with Legosach donations! After the Lego® has arrived, it is first cleaned of dust and dirt and roughly sorted. In the second phase, the Lego® is finely sorted. After the sorting process, the Lego® is placed in the washroom. Here it is checked again whether the coarse impurities have been removed. If this is the case, we fill the Legos® into a laundry bag, add disinfectant and wash the whole thing at approx. 35°C in the washing machine. After washing, the Legos® are thoroughly dried by hand. The Legos® are then stored in our warehouse and recorded in the database. As soon as Lego® is sold via our shop, the corresponding Legos® are removed from storage and removed from the database before being packed and dispatched.
