From wood, carpet and kerbside recycling to furniture reuse, paint reprocessing and community composting, CRNS members handle a vast range of materials and engage in a broad swathe of activities. These include the refurbishment and reuse of furniture; the recycling of materials and products into new goods, community composting (turning food and garden waste into compost for growing food and plants), and waste prevention.
Many CRNS members are pioneers in their field: the Shetland-based glass recycling enterprise Enviroglass, which has patented a process to turn bottles and jars into paving slabs; Scotland’s first proper paint reprocessing operation, RePaint Scotland; and an ambitious project to collect food waste for composting from high-rise flats in Dumbartonshire.
CRNS members provide services to businesses, local authorities, households and individuals. For more information on what all our members do, go to our Find a member page.
