Briefing Paper: Reuse, Repair & Recycling Social Enterprises

Our latest Briefing Paper highlights the significant role that Reuse, Repair and Recycling social enterprises play in using their activities to create pathways to work and real jobs for people furthest from the labour market.

It profiles 4 member Social Firms – Glasgow Wood Recycling, Kintyre Recycling, LAMH Recycle, and Spruce Carpets – working in a variety of industry sectors, managing waste resources at a local level through recycling, reuse, repair and waste reduction activities.

These case studies give a flavour of how these members meet both environmental and social objectives.

  • Creating a more sustainable society by helping reduce waste and save resources
  • Creating a fairer, more equitable society by providing employment, training and meaningful activity for some of Scotland’s most vulnerable and socially excluded individuals.
