Welcome to the Rediscovery Centre

Leading change from waste to resource through re-use, re-design, research and education.

The Rediscovery Centre is a social enterprise dedicated to providing community employment and training via innovative reuse enterprises which use waste and unwanted materials as a resource and raw material for new product design.

Our scientists, designers, business managers and craftsmen are united in a common purpose of sustainability through resource efficiency and life cycle design.  Our operational processes and programmes provide workplace skills training and development for unemployed people, graduates and the community. Our public training courses, demonstrations and educational activities highlight the benefits of effective resource management and encourage everyone to REDISCOVER the value of waste.
