& non-for profit groups.
Through our membership, we strive to help charitable reuse and recycling enterprises build their operational capacity and scale their impact. For over a century, charitable reuse and recycling enterprises have pioneered circular economy thinking. In particular, these principles are best observed in the operations of charity and social enterprise retailers.
It’s their collection, repurposing and sale of donated goods that fuels Canada’s second-hand economy. As our country’s largest reuse network, NACTR represents many of these charitable reuse and recycling enterprises.
