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.


 Have a look at our calendar to see where we are next in Orkney.

We have excellent volunteering opportunities in Orkney and are registed with Voluntary Action Orkney.


If you want to become a volunteer with us, or like us to come and visit or talk to your group please contact us by email.

Through local our local education programme, we also highlight the national themes with Zero Waste Scotland which we enthusiastically deliver throughout Orkney and the Isles.



Our mission is to encourage local innovation in reusing and recycling waste, and are always looking for new, local solutions for specific local waste problems. If we can help you, please let us know - email here.
