100% reusable goodness!

We are a social enterprise based in Leeds, focused on helping the environment by reusing waste materials from businesses as resources for art and play.

We have a beautiful mill shop which is open to everyone, full to the rafters with discarded materials, originally destined for landfill. These materials are sold at very low prices and reused for art and play purposes by local community groups, schools, students and individuals. As well as the fantastical scrap shop we offer a variety of services creative workshops and training for adults and children, scrapsheds (containers full of outdoor play resources for schools), family learning, art drop-in sessions, schools projects and out of school activities all based around the environment and reuse.

Membership of SCRAP is open to everyone who wants to buy scrap from us, just join when you visit our shop and are ready to purchase.

We also have reSTORE - our eco friendly refill station, same opening hours, bring your own containers (or buy ours) and stock up on household cleaning products and toiletries.
