School & Community Assistance for Recycling and Composting Education
SCARCE is an award-winning environmental education non-profit dedicated to creating sustainable communities. We accomplish this through innovative and hands-on education programs for schools and organizations, demonstrating care for people and our natural resources through our Reuse Center, and engaging the broader public through community-wide events and programs.
For over 30 years SCARCE has been implementing change to foster a more sustainable future. Find out how we can make an impact together.
SCARCE is committed to finding a way to keep “stuff” out of a landfill by finding a way to reuse or recycle as much as we can!
SCARCE works to keep things out of the landfill and
get them to people near and far that can use them.
