The City of Brussels' “Prêterie Project” makes renting various objects at a low cost possible for its inhabitants. Thanks to this service, the purchase of an object used only once or twice a year can be avoided. These objects often become waste in the long term, and are also a waste of resources and money.
To carry out this project, the City of Brussels teamed up with the Brussels cooperative Usitoo. A wide selection of objects are available for rent: cleaning equipment, DIY tools, travel equipment, logistics for small events, etc.
The City offers discount codes when renting objects for its residents, non-profit associations and residents of the CPAS/OCMW (sociale welfare office) (postal code: 1000, 1020, 1120 and 1130). The codes to be applied for each category are :
- The residents of the City -25% BXLZD
- CPAS residents -50% BXLCPAS
- Associations -50 % BXLEnsemble
The ordered items are delivered in a Usi-relay point (pick-up point) located in the City. The pick-up point is selected when ordering. There are 7 Usi-relay points in the City. Other points will be opened during 2022 in various parts of the City (postal codes 1000, 1020, 1120 and 1130).
