About the CRNS

Valuing our waste resources, working at the local level

The Community Resources Network Scotland (CRNS) represents recycling and re-use organisations across Scotland on issues of sustainable community resource management.

Most members of CRNS are social enterprises managing waste resources at a local level through recycling, reuse, composting, waste reduction and waste education activities. They prevent tonnes of valuable product and materials from ending up in landfill, create local jobs and other economic opportunities, and typically work to help those on low incomes or who are disadvantaged.
