Cambridge Community Scrapstore


Scrapstore aims to encourage you to think about recycling and reducing your carbon footprint.

Members can collect a wide selection of recycled and reused materials that can then be used for art, craft and play activities.

Opening times and location

Scrapstore is open on Wednesday evenings and some Saturdays, during the school term only:

  • Every Wednesday evening, from 4 to 7.30pm
  • On the second Saturday of the month, from 1.30 to 3pm
    • No Saturdays in April, but we'll announce where we'll be at Easter soon
    • 12 May

You can find Scrapstore at Unit 17, Barnwell Business Park, Barnwell Drive, Cambridge CB5 8UZ.


  • Individual membership: £5 per year
  • Group membership: £10 per year

Members are given a reusable bag which they can fill with the materials of their choice. As a member you pay £1 per bag of materials if you bring your bag back for a refill, and £1.50 per bag of materials if you would like to buy additional bags.

To become a member, bring a completed copy of the application form (or ask us for a copy) when you visit us.

Payments can only be completed at our store as we only accept cash. We can issue printed receipts for your records.


Scrapstore relies on kind donations of unwanted materials from local businesses and the local community. Our donation guide [PDF, 441kB] gives an idea of the types of material we accept.
