Reuse: Scrapstores

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:

Clowns Scrapstore
Minehead Eye, Minehead, TA24 5BJ
01643 707190
