Don't throw it away, use it another way
To provide a creative reuse centre where schools, pre-schools, community groups, families, individuals and anyone else can come to find an array of products that would have ended up as landfill and use them to design and create exciting craft projects.
What is a creative reuse centre ?
As a reuse centre we collect clean business waste and by-products which is assessed for its suitability and then distribute them as low cost arts and craft resources to our members . When you visit us, you'll find a wide variety of items from tubes to jars, shiny paper to foam pieces, whatever your project we're sure we'll have something that you can use ! To protect us and our suppliers we run on a membership system whereby you pay an annual fee and then pay a charge each time you take something away. We are open to everyone including families, scouts, guides, schools and nurseries and we have no boundaries, wherever you live, you are welcome at Percy!
Percy Middlesbrough is a community interest company which aims to provide Middlesbrough and the surrounding areas with a scrapstore, now known as a creative reuse centre.
We are a not for profit organisation which means all funds raised are ploughed back into the project which is fully staffed by unpaid volunteers
