Recycling with Scrappies

Do you or your business often have lots of waste you think could be re-used? 

Local (Church-Stretton based) charity Scrappies can collect from you free of charge.  They collect all over Shrewsbury (and beyond) and they are particularly interested in good quality, clean rolls of plastic sheeting and fabrics which they can use for arts projects.  They are also always on the lookout for boxes, tubs, containers, packaging, excess stationery, expired samples etc.  If you’re a manufacturer perhaps you could donate your end-of-rolls, or any leftovers you have that you think would be suitable for craft workers and children to use.

If you have a large enough amount they will also collect from householders, shops and other small businesses. Scrappies help you ethically and legally get rid of your waste for free and in an environmentally sustainable manner they transform it in to something useful - to help support their arts and education work with our community.

Contact Scrappies directly to arrange a collection via their website or by phoning 01694 722 511
