Purpose & Objectives

Reuse Scotland SCIO works with Local Authorities, corporate partners and thousands of households to keep good reusable materials out of landfill for community benefit. This is a true local circular economy in action.

Reuse Scotland aims to donate 30% of all materials received to social enterprises, charities, community groups, schools, and those suffering hardship or living in deprivation.

Surplus generated by sales through our shops is invested into covering the costs of providing free stuff to local communities and expanding the organisation into new territories. All remaining profits are distributed to local charitable groups which meet our Charitable Purposes and Objectives.
