Founded in 2018 by scenic fabricators Matt Doolan and Simon Cook, Reset Scenery is a non-profit organisation offering the Scottish Entertainment Industry an environmentally responsible, circular alternative to landfill for its unwanted scenery, props, and furniture.

Matt and Simon, driven by their experience in the fast-paced, short production cycles of the Stage, Screen, and Events sectors, often found themselves fabricating scenery only to dispose of it shortly after. This wasteful practice inspired them to seek more sustainable solutions for the hundreds of tonnes of scenery discarded in Scotland each year.


With a strong commitment to reducing waste and promoting resource reuse, Reset Scenery strives to transform the industry by providing a platform for the redistribution, repurposing, and responsible disposal of scenic items. By doing so, they aim to create a greener and more sustainable future for the Scottish Entertainment Industry.



Reset Scenery is here to support your transition towards cleaner, greener productions. Take advantage of our comprehensive services and join us in building a more sustainable future for the entertainment industry.

Sales & Hires:

Discover our vast inventory of reclaimed scenic items available for sale or hire at prices up to 45% cheaper than fabricating from scratch. Save both money and carbon by choosing our eco-friendly options. Visit our stock page to explore what's currently available in our warehouse.


Whether it's a venue at the end of a tour, a soundstage, or your storage facility, we offer comprehensive clearance services. Our team will handle and repurpose your unwanted scenery responsibly. We work closely with you to establish customized terms of reuse, ensuring the protection of your original design and intellectual property.


When scenery reaches the end of its usefulness, we expertly break it down, separating the various materials used in its construction. By recovering as much viable material as possible, we contribute to future builds while ensuring proper recycling of the remaining components. Say goodbye to mixed waste landfill.


We provide tailored training sessions for all. Enhance your skills in the use of hand and power tools, construction techniques, and scenery fundamentals. Our goal is to foster the next generation of sustainable artists, empowering you to make the most of our resources.

Scottish Opera

This is a much needed and long overdue addition to the production ecology of Scotland...

...It is only right that all of us in involved in the theatre and film production industry in Scotland make far better use of these precious resources in the challenging times ahead. Reset Scenery could not have been formed at a more important time to provide an essential link between the original creators and future potential customers.

Gemma Swallow,

Technical Director of National Theatre of Scotland

They are promoting a best practice circular economy that we desperately need to be following to fight the growing climate crisis, and their plans to incorporate pathways into the sector through employment and training into their remit can only be good news...

...Reset Scenery is a vital cog in that mechanism. I hope that we can continue to grow our relationship with them and in turn help them to grow to be able to support and resource as many partners as possible.

Kirsty Currie, 

Set and Costume Designer

We recently used Reset Scenery for a production of ‘ Julius Caesar' at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland...

...The whole process from the transport and storage of the tiles and the build itself was made so simple and easy with the amazing help from Simon and Matt of Reset Scenery. It saved us a lot of time/labour/money - it was such a huge help to us on a low budget show. Highly recommend!
