Trash or treasure

Story by Yanina Koszalinski

Scrap Dragon, the brainchild of Alex, Gillian and Yanina, is a newly opened scrap store in Burngreave. Scrap stores collect waste materials, donated by local businesses, and recycle them for use in children’s play and creative activities. While most of our goods are donated to us, there is a small charge to cover our basic running costs. Anyone can come and visit us, particularly those involved with young people’s organisations, craft activities and community groups. But if you want to take away any of our materials you need to be a member.

Membership is free from September to December and forms are available from Scrap Dragon, 204 Verdon Street on Mondays and Thursdays 11am-3pm and on Saturdays 10am-1pm. For more details email, telephone 0114 272 0615 or visit

We want your feed back!

We’d love to hear from more of Burngreave’s people about how they think the Burngreave Messenger could best serve the community, so we’ve created an opportunity for you to tell us what you’d like us to do.
