Worcestershire Resource Exchange
WRE is a creative re-use charity. Running a scrapstore, we collect clean and safe waste from local businesses, diverting it from landfill. Worcestershire Resource Exchange is a registered charity set up as part of the Duckworth Worcestershire Trust to provide inspirational and affordable resources, whilst reducing landfill. Our scrapstore stocks a multitude of resource suitable for many creative activities and hobbies including paper, card, fabrics, wool, paint, wood, art materials and a variety of weird and wonderful things not available on the high street. It truly is an Aladdin's cave of things you every knew you needed or wanted. Our main objectives are to: Provide affordable, safe waste materials, advice and training to a wide range of individuals, artists, community groups and schools. Provide training, volunteering and work opportunities for students, volunteers, the unemployed and people from disadvantaged backgrounds. Promote re-use and recycling, to reduce the amount of materials going into the waste stream. Educate the public, schools, business groups and other organisations about incorporating waste minimisation and recycling, as part of their efforts to reduce their environmental impact.
