Ragtag Community Scrapstore is a creative re-use and recycling project diverting waste from landfill and turning it into useful and creative resources for the community.

   

The Scrapstore is overflowing with a huge variety of exciting things, including fabric, paper, card, gift boxes, ribbon, reels and so much more...

 

We are open for everyone to use.

So pop in and see the amazing variety of materials we have to offer.

We collect clean, safe waste from businesses that would otherwise go to landfill.

REPAINT

WE SELL

REPURPOSED

PAINT

We are now part of the nationwide RePaint scheme.

We collect left over paint from businesses and sell it to the community at an affordable price.

Starting from just £2 per litre!

The paint we collect is new mostly unopened, new tins. They are donated to us either because the tin is dented; the paint has been returned to the shop; or it's surplus from a decorators job. 

Please note we do not collect used tins of paint from households.

For more details about our repaint scheme, or if you are a business and would like to donate paint please click here to Contact Chris.

In 2018 RePaint diverted 433,250 ltrs of paint from landfill across the UK

Re-Make is a new project we are launching at the Scrapstore. We will be supporting an amazing group of volunteers with disabilities to create beautiful craft kits out of Scrap.

You will be able to buy their kits in

our shop and we will be running

stalls at events too!
