Miixer CIC (trading as Zero Waste Dunbar) is an award winning non-profit Social Enterprise. Our Dunbar shop is a 5000sq ft reuse superstore; a real Aladdin’s cave of treasures rescued from landfill. We sell everything you can imagine, and many things you won’t find anywhere else. Our shops are a rummager’s dream.
There’s a Pay What You Want bookshop, tonnes of furniture, bric a brac, toys, industrial and electrical items etc. We receive around 2 tonnes of donations every
day, and have a FREE section outside for excess stock.
We are all about REUSE; keeping good things in local circulation, rather than landfill. Much of our stock comes directly from local community donations, but we also work with Film Studios, Universities, Schools and large corporates, so our stock is varied, and often downright weird!
Miixer CIC was established in April 2017 to continue and develop the legacy of Dunbar as Scotland's First Zero Waste Town. Miixer CIC now diverts between 60-90 tonnes of material from landfill every month to reuse for community benefit. From our shop in Dunbar we sell quality items cheaply to our local communities, donate to local groups and charities, and support those in need with free goods.
We are an experimental organisation and we are trying new ways of making reuse work, so you’ll often find us holding unusual sales of scientific, sports and school equipment. Follow our Social Media to hear about events. We are proud to be Revolve accredited for Safety and Quality.
We operate across East Lothian in partnership with East Lothian Council. You can donate your unwanted, quality items for reuse at our Zero Waste Sheds at Dunbar, North Berwick and Strawberry Corner Recycling Centres. Alternatively, you can donate at the Zero Waste Shop in Dunbar. Our aims are to:
● Divert materials from landfill for community reuse.
● Create jobs.
● Develop and incubate innovative social enterprises which foster sharing and
nurture local circular economies.
● Alleviate poverty and inequalities through the promotion of waste as a
Miixer is a non-profit organisation that currently receives no external funding. All costs are covered by trading income and if any profits are left at the end of the year, they are used to create new jobs in reuse. We love what we do, and hope you do too.
