The all-island body for community repair, reuse and recycling organisations

Our vision is an Ireland where the word ‘Waste’ doesn’t exist and where our entire community benefits from the social, environmental and economic value of all reusable resources.

Support for members

We help our members grow and thrive through developing a dynamic network fostering knowledge sharing and collaboration, strengthening members’ capacity through business opportunities and training, representing members at local, national and international level and promoting our membership base.

Mainstreaming the Community Resources Sector

We work to mainstream reuse, repair and recycling through raising the profile of the sector and promoting behavioural change, developing supportive policy and conducting or supporting research to help overcome barriers.

Building our capacity

To facilitate the growth of the network and its long term sustainability, we will continue to build our internal capacity through good governance and developing our funding strategy.

  • have your voice heard at a national and international level through policy and campaigns
  • engage in networking, training and new business opportunities
