Scrapstores are a great resource allowing unwanted materials to be reused. Businesses can donate clean, safe unwanted materials (such as foam off-cuts, textiles and plastic lids). Scrapstores sell on these materials at a low cost to schools and community groups for reuse in arts and craft projects.
There are three scrapstores in Somerset:
Minehead Eye, Minehead, TA24 5BJ
Yeovil Scrapstore and Community Resource Service
(From late September 2015) The Community Resource Centre, 27 Market Street, Yeovil, Somerset BA20 1HZ
And outside Somerset county:
There are independent scrapstores all over the UK – see: Scrapstores UK website
