Miixer CIC – Zero Waste

MiiXER CIC have reopened their retail outlet on a permanent basis on Musselburgh High Street

This is a third sector initiative that works in partnership with Waste Services to aim for Zero Waste.

On the last Sunday of each month kids clothes will be free. Each family can take up to 2 kg of children’s clothes (including shoes) which must be checked out at the counter so that they can record weights.

School uniforms and wellies are free every day and anyone requiring a suit for interview will also be assisted in the same way.
