Scrap Exchange Recycles Landfill Intended Material
The Scrap Exchange, a nonprofit creative reuse center, was established in 1991 in Durham North Carolina. It has changed locations a couple of times but its message is still the same, that the world would be a better place if we could reuse and recycle items that normally end up in landfills. They estimate that they save about 40 tons of materials per year.
They also have workshops, clothing exchanges, go on the road to schools in NC and other states and have a gallery that features local artists. We like this idea so much that we think every neighborhood should have one! Contact the Scrap Exchange if you want to get involved.
