SCRAP, the nation's first non-profit creative reuse center, was founded in 1976 in San Francisco. For more than 40 years, SCRAP has diverted usable materials, supported teachers, students, artists and others, and offered fascinating classes and workshops.

SCRAP breathes new life into old objects and reduces waste by diverting over 250 tons of materials from landfills every year.

All of our workshops and classes emphasize the importance of the creative reuse of materials. Workshops are designed to inspire participants to create art that reflects a commitment to environmentally sustainable behavior. In each class, participants will have the opportunity to utilize materials from SCRAP’s vast and eclectic inventory of supplies.

The community depends on SCRAP as the place to find a wide variety of materials for educational programs, creative projects, and their classrooms. By offering low cost supplies, creative reuse workshops, volunteer opportunities, educational field trips, art exhibitions, and more, SCRAP gives students of all ages the opportunity to learn and pass on the value of creative reuse.

 SCRAP is a 501(c)(3) Non-profit organization, and welcomes your gift of materials and financial support.
