[info_box icon_url=”/wp-includes/images/logos/timeline.png” type_column=”alpha” title=”A Brief History”]Tayside Re-Users has existed since 1995 as a charity & social enterprise involved in environmental matters. For almost 20 years, we have promoted local and national environmental concerns, provided awareness and education about the recycling and re-use of resources, and worked closely with the local community to try to achieve these aims.[/info_box]
[info_box icon_url=”/wp-includes/images/logos/roundarrow.png” type_column=”” title=”Re-Use & Recycling”]Tayside Re-Users is a social enterprise – we generate the funds we need to continue to exist through trading, rather than through more traditional fundraising. We accept donations of used furniture, white goods and electrical items from the public. These items are tested, refurbished and sold from The Emporium, so that members of the public can get a good deal![/info_box]
[info_box icon_url=”/wp-includes/images/logos/3_arrows.png” type_column=”omega” title=”Volunteering”]We run a busy warehouse which makes sure we can accept donations, test and refurbish items and sell them onto the public. This creates employment opportunities and the chance for individuals to volunteer in an active workplace. Tayside Re-Users regularly has 15 volunteers working with us to ensure that we can do all we can to help the environment and the local community.[/info_box]
