Worcestershire Resource Exchange is a ‘scrapstore’ in Worcester, which collects clean and safe waste from a range of local industries and businesses, diverting it from landfill. This ‘Aladdin’s Cave’ of low cost reclaimed material is then made available to members as a creative resource for projects.
Its own innovative Wremade project takes material off cuts and remnants collected from local businesses and a team of ‘Wremaker’ volunteers turns them into environmentally friendly products.
The project has recently received the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.
