We are excited to announce that registration is now open for the CRNS Annual Conference which this year, due to Covid restrictions, will be held digitally.

The conference, ‘A Fairer Scotland, A Greener World’, is being run over 2 mornings on Tuesday 17th and Wednesday 18th November 2020 and on the third day we will host our AGM (Wednesday 19th).

You can book now for the conference via this registration link, which will direct you to the Hopin platform to register for the event.Managers and senior staff please consider encouraging your staff, board members and volunteers to register.  The conference is free for our members and with no travel time / costs involved, and a modest non-member charge, there really are no barriers to attending.

We are delighted to be welcoming back Dr Heather Reid, OBE (Heather the Weather as she has been affectionately known) to host the event and we are excited to feature Wildlife and Documentary Film Maker Doug Allan.  In addition, we have a packed programme encompassing key sector speakers, member spotlights and themed breakouts.

‘The Expo’ will be this year’s digital Market Place where delegates can connect with different exhibitors and there will also be various types of networking opportunities from the more formalised automated match up, to informal options such as text bars, private message and video chats.

This event would not be possible without the support of our sponsors and we wish to say a very big thank you to our headline sponsor Zero Waste Scotland, our event sponsors Keegan & Pennykid Insurance Brokers; Keenan Recycling; WasteSwitch; Just Enterprise and our IT sponsor Kudos Software.



This dedicated third sector event for Scotland’s reuse, repair and recycling sector will enable you to engage digitally with c140 other likeminded individuals.  Delegates are primarily CRNS members with stakeholders; local government personnel; funders and private organisations operating within the sector all habitually in attendance.

Whilst navigating through such difficult and challenging times this year, we have seen many CRNS members deliver outstanding services and carry out remarkable work, to meet the challenges that their own communities face.  By coming together and acknowledging these extraordinary challenges, we will also commemorate the resolve and achievements that have been made by those members servicing the communities and people most in need.  Together we can aim for a Fairer Scotland and in turn a Greener World.
