A social enterprise which repairs and refurbishes mobility equipment in Clydebank for elderly and disabled customers is celebrating after news that it is to receive funding from Zero Waste Scotland to train staff in essential repair skills.

Recycle Mobility Centre was revealed as the 50th Revolve-certified store in Scotland after meeting the criteria for quality and customer service in second-hand stores.

The business, based at Clydebank’s Market Village, offers repairs, refurbishments and sales, and has been awarded a grant from Zero Waste Scotland to train staff in reuse and repair skills, including developing one to SVQ level 2 in Electrical Engineering.

Richard Lochhead, Cabinet Secretary for the Environment, said: ‘Encouraging reuse and repair forms a key part of the Scottish Government’s circular economy strategy, Making Things Last.’

Sam Moir, Revolve Manager, Zero Waste Scotland, added: ‘Recycle Mobility Centre provides an essential service for many people in the local areas, professional workmanship and great customer service.

‘Boosting existing repair skills also has the potential to create many new, sustainable jobs in communities across Scotland, such as those created by Recycle Mobility Centre, and we hope the repair grant will help to promote this.’

As Scotland’s national reuse standard which is managed by Zero Waste Scotland, Revolve acts as a quality kite mark for shoppers when buying high quality second-hand goods.
