Orkney Zerowaste is a local Scottish registered charity working in the community to raise waste awareness and offer practical recycling advice in Orkney.  We also run the Orkney Zerowaste Yard a community re-use/recycling site, in Stromness where if we can we try to be a 'one stop drop' helping our community by offering recycling solutions whenever we can!

 For the Winter, from 1st November 2015, the Yard will be open on Saturdays 10-3pm only. See our Facebook page for regular updates - please 'like' our page!

A huge part of our work in Orkney is to offer local waste awareness education through a series of events and workshops throughout the county in the community or in schools/groups.
