The Oxfordshire Scrapstore

Our stores

About us


Our mission is to banish boredom and save the planet using creativity and play to inspire the reuse of materials. Over its 25 year history, Orinoco has saved lorry loads of interesting resources from ending up in landfill.

Our Scrapstores in Banbury and Templars Square Oxford sell scrap items for art, crafts, play and creative projects as well as new art materials, refurbished tools and DIY stuff.

You don’t have to be a member to shop with us, just come along to the store and join in. We are here for everyone: mums, dads, children, young people, teachers, childcare professionals, artists…

  • We collect suitable waste materials from businesses for potential reuse. If your company is paying good money to throw stuff away it’s worth calling us to see if we can help find a better use for your rubbish.
  • We accept usable garden, workshop tools and small electrical items for repair.
