these pages.  Please feel free to browse this site to get a feel of our

organisation and use the contact details on the Contact Us page – they

are up-to-date and will be updated if there are any changes.




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!

From 1st July 2017 the Yard will be open on Wednesdays and 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.

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.
