All the scrap used in a Scrapstore PlayPod® is clean and safe waste which is collected from around 350 Bristol-area based small, medium and multinational businesses and manufacturers. The Children’s Scrapstore collects on average around 100 tonnes of business waste materials every year from the Bristol area. The materials they collect range from reusable off-cuts, over-runs, rejected materials and production process by-products to unwanted finished goods of all sorts.
The scrap is monitored by the schools and thrown away or recycled if things become unsafe or hazardous to the children’s play. For example a keyboard which has shattered.
