We represent a thriving network of charities and social enterprises that supports Scotland’s circular economy.

At Circular Communities Scotland, we empower our national network of reuse, repair and recycling charities in two ways:

Representing our membership and the sector to a wide range of stakeholders

Supporting our membership and facilitating the growth of our sector in Scotland

As well as supporting and representing our members, we are also involved in projects and programmes to support the third sector, in pursuit of zero waste.

We represent and support over 250 repair, reuse and recycling charities and social enterprises across the country. Our members prevent valuable products and materials from ending up in landfill, create local jobs, economic opportunities, and help promote and create social and environmental justice in their communities.
