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 materials change constantly but we often have paper, felt, cardboard, shiny film, sticky backed foam, plastics, fabric, tubing and much, much more!
You never know what new things we might have from week to week, and this makes the scrapstore worth visiting regularly or keeping up-to-date by email or in our blog section.
Alongside these resources we also sell other reclaimed materials. There is a selection of household paint in our Community RePaint area, and our wood store regularly contains plywood, MDF, chipboard, skirting and other lengths of timber.
Anyone wanting materials for creative activities whether it is art & craft, play, therapy or DIY. We are used by childminders, scouts/brownies/guides, respite carers, home educators, schools, residential care homes, allotment societies, church groups, artists, families, model builders, re-enactors, care farms, youth groups, theatres, festivals, homeless charities, DIY enthusiasts…
The list is endless!
