Established in 2008, SCR Group has grown to become one of Australia’s most preferred companies for the recovery of clothing and homewares for reuse and recycling. Each year we save over ten million kilos from landfill and instead find new homes for our unwanted items – giving them a second life in local and developing international markets.
As a purpose-driven business, our aim is to improve the livelihoods of the communities in which we operate. Our business model is based on important partnerships with Australian Disability Enterprises (ADE’s) and other social enterprises, providing sustainable employment opportunities for people with disabilities and disadvantaged youth at risk. We also partner with Australian charities such as the Australian Red Cross, The Smith Family and Save The Children, to provide sustainable incomes that fund their social causes and increase awareness.
Our services include Clothing and Electrical Drop-Off Hubs for the community and shopping centres, Pop Up Drive Thru Recycling Days and Residential Kerbside Collections for Councils, Educational and Fundraising School Programs that teach students about the importance and benefits of reuse and recycling and Clothing Take-Back Programs for retailers and hotels. If you can’t find a service that suits your business or organisation, you can always Request A Service and we can customise a program that suits your needs.
We are constantly improving our services and reinvesting in research and development. Currently SCR Group is analysing reuse and recycling attitudes and behaviours in Australia and participating in projects to help solve the problem of illegal dumping.
