CRNS Enewsletter 19th May 2016
It continues to be a busy time for CRNS and our members, especially for those involved in the consortium bid to Scottish Excel for a reuse furniture lot. If this opportunity progresses as anticipated it could define future relationships between our members and local authorities. Please read the full consortium article below.
I was delighted to give a presentation at last weekâ€™s busy ZWS reuse and repair conference in Stirling where there were over 80 delegates including 22 of our members. It was great to listen to and swap experiences with our reuse colleagues in Flanders and their De Kringwinkel Meetjesland project.
We were very interested in the discussions that arose from our workshop on extended producer responsibility for furniture. We will continue to collate views on this from our members and lobby for more work to be done on a potential Scottish furniture levy.
I look forward to catching up with a number of our members at our May and June forum and seminar events.
