The Cone Exchange
The Cone Exchange is our community scrap store and home to our pirate – Captain Rummage – who encourages young people and our local community to recycle and reuse.
The story of Cone Exchange began over 10 years ago, when we were showing a group of young people with learning difficulties around our tea and coffee factory. One creative youngster spotted a cardboard cone and asked to take it home to make an angel for the top of his Christmas tree. Soon more schools were asking for cones and the idea of the Cone Exchange was born.
Ten years on and the Cone Exchange encourages school children to recycle in exchange for Cone Exchange rewards; supports social enterprises by providing waste from our own and other businesses to use for crafts; provides meaningful work experience and placements for young people with additional learning needs; and raises funds through sales of waste for local good causes.
The Cone Exchange is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:30am – 3pm. No appointment necessary and we look forward to welcoming you back. For further information, please visit Cone Exchange or for specific enquiries email us via firstname.lastname@example.org
