The Community Resources Network Scotland (CRNS) represents recycling and re-use organisations across Scotland on issues of sustainable community resource management.
Most members of CRNS are social enterprises managing waste resources at a local level through recycling, reuse, composting, waste reduction and waste education activities. They prevent tonnes of valuable product and materials from ending up in landfill, create local jobs and other economic opportunities, and typically work to help those on low incomes or who are disadvantaged.

CRNS envisions a future where there is no waste, only resources. Where people, communities and the environment are valued and respected. Our members are on the frontline, helping to make that future happen.
As well as representing its membership body, CRNS works on a number of projects and programmes to support the third sector in Scotland in pursuit of Zero Waste. The majority of these are funded by Zero Waste Scotland, which receives funding from the Scottish Government to support delivery of Scotland’s Zero Waste Plan. Zero Waste Scotland delivers a range of programmes, campaigns and other interventions to help people and organisations on the journey to Zero Waste.
