The Project was founded by James Scott in 2012, although due to planning restrictions could not be registered until 2013.  At the very young age of just 34 and having put so much into setting up his Project, James sadly died in May 2014.  James had originally named his project the North Somerset ReUse Project, however this was renamed and dedicated the James Scott's North Somerset ReUse Project (JSNSRP) in 2015 by James' mum Patricia Scott; his legacy and the ethos of James' Project continue in his loving memory by Patricia.

The aim of the Project is to reduce landfill and to actively promote this; we are an environmental service. The Project is a non profit-making social enterprise; a Community Interest Company and is completely unfunded.


The Project takes in items brought in by individuals and businesses who no longer want/need them and then sells them to others at an affordable but responsible cost. Therefore, saving the items ending up in landfill and enables the Project to continue promoting reuse.



Most of the items we take in are from sheds, garages and gardens. Mainly hardware from nuts and bolts and​ wood pieces to ladders and garden gates and items you just don’t know where to take – except to landfill, if you’re clearing out for space or moving due to downsizing. We also accept ceramic pots, taps, shower and light fittings and so much more!

The store's opening hours are Tuesday - Saturday, 11am - 4pm. We close on Sunday, Monday, and on bank holidays.(Please note this is for customers coming to the store only and not for dropping off items)

Details for Accepting Items

If you have items to bring to us please do not do so during the above 'normal' opening times and please don't leave them outside the store when it's unattended. Since COVID-19, we, like many others, have had to change how we do things. Therefore we ask that you telephone or email us in the first instance and we can arrange a mutually convenient time for you to do so.


Community RePaint

Besides the many items the Project deals with, it is also a member of the Community RePaint Scheme which is sponsored by Dulux and accepts partial and useable tins of paint.


What We Save From Going to Landfill

During 2019 the Project saved just over 25 tonnes going to landfill.


Since COVID 19 the store has been rearranged to account for social distancing and a new one way system for the safety of customers and staff.

Steps have been taken to allow for future items coming in to the store to be allocated in a more structured way. This will mean I may have to limit items coming in and only at certain times. Please see separate note under details for accepting items.

A lot has been done to ensure a COVID 19 safe visit and hopefully those who have visited the store previously will realise just how much work has been involved but will see a vast improvement and an even better experience when visiting us next.

Face coverings must be worn while in the store, hand sanitizer is available and for your safety and for the safety of the staff and volunteers who work at the store, we have restricted the number of customers in the store at any one time, so if you are asked to queue outside, please be patient as we hope these new measures make you, and us, feel safe and comfortable during your visit.
