[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]THE work of a re-cycling organisation has been praised after it held an open day at its Paisley showroom.

More than 100 people from community groups, businesses and the public visited Oskar’s, which is part of the KibbleWorks group of businesses providing jobs and employment training to young people.

The organisation collects, refurbishes and sells unwanted furniture and household goods. It also provides a range of property maintenance services.

Alison Organ, project officer for the re-use, repair and recycling charity, Community Resources Network Scotland said: “It’s the first time I have been to Oskar’s to see the recycling and up-cycling of goods that’s going on here. It’s brilliant as there’s a great variety and quality of goods here.

“It feeds into everything we are trying to achieve by creating a circular economy and Oskar’s also gives young people the chance of jobs and employment training.”

Oskar’s manager, Karen Gilligan said: “It’s very heartening for our staff to see such a great interest being taken in what we are achieving here.”

Oskar’s is based at 55 Clark Street, Paisley and for more information log on to www.oskars.org.uk or contact Karen Gilligan on 0141 847 6626[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
