Founded in 2003, CCORRN became an incorporated association and social enterprise in 2005.

We are an impartial, independent organisation dedicated to supporting community reuse and recycling.

Our work involves providing eco goods and services that have people and planet at the heart of all we do.

We believe in the equality of access to goods and services that are ecologically and financially sustainable.  

Waste is a resource that with imagination can be repurposed. Second hand should be our first choice. 



As a social enterprise CCORRN exists for a social or environmental purpose, our income is used to cover the costs of providing our core objectives and any surplus is reinvested in developing more social and environmental impact and local community benefit to those in need.  

Our stakeholders include:

  • Community Groups
  • Social Enterprises
  • Charities
  • Local Authorities
  • Businesses
  • Government Departments
  • Members of the public
  • CCORRN Members
  • Volunteers and our Staff.


CCORRN is governed and guided by a management committee that represent the stakeholders and ensure that CCORRN continues to be a valuable resource to our community. 

CCORRN has fourteen members of staff who are ably supported by our invaluable hard working volunteers as well as people on work experience and training schemes.

CCORRN is proud to be part of both the Community RePaint and Reuseful UK networks.
