SCRAP Goes East

New owners move to Glencoe Crossing.

by Sabine Bickford

From the January, 2020 issue

Two years ago, national reuse nonprofit SCRAP USA took over management of the Scrap Box, a nonprofit that for thirty-seven years had invited kids to turn all sorts of surplus materials into craft creations. Now they've renamed it SCRAP Creative Reuse and moved it from State Cir. to a smaller site next to Glencoe Crossing on Washtenaw.

"Most of the space we lost we actually weren't using," says director Claire Tyra. The original site had a large warehouse area that the new team had cleared out to make donated scrap materials more immediately available to customers. "The floor space is actually a little bit bigger now," Tyra says. In addition to its reuse store, SCRAP will continue to offer workshops and field trips for adults and children from its new space.

SCRAP Creative Reuse, 4567 Washtenaw Ave. (734) 800-4137. Tues.-Sun. 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Closed Mon.     (end of article)
