The Scrap Exchange promotes creativity, environmental awareness, and community through reuse.
We are a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization that collects material donations from hundreds of individuals, businesses, industries, and municipal sources and distributes them through our Creative ReUse Center located in Durham, North Carolina.
Further distribution of the materials occurs in the form of outreach events, workshops, and birthday parties. The materials collected represent a snapshot of local industry and businesses. Our donors receive a tax-deductible donation receipt for the fair market value, the arts community has access to hard to find, affordable materials, and TSE prevents reusable items from entering the waste stream.
