How schools can help
You can help by getting your school involved in recycling clothes for charity!
Do you want some much-needed extra money for your school?
We can provide a variety of ways to help you do this!
- Collection 4 Clothes offer bulk charity clothes collection services for schools. Organise collection days with your pupils and staff for second-hand clothing or bric-a-brac, and an allocated, experienced driver will collect the donations on a day that suits you or within 24 hours of your request. Our drivers are all DBS checked and will possess ID to show on the day.
- You can order 200 complimentary tote bags for your school to educate your pupils on the environment, the importance of giving to the less fortunate and promote recycling. These tote bags will be given to the students to fill them with unwanted clothes, toys, and other items. These donations can then be placed in one of our collection units pictured to then be collected by us. This is a great initiative and can help you school raise funds for either yourselves or a selected charity.
- Small recycle unit in your school reception area. This recycling box can be placed your reception area to encourage your pupils to give to charity and fundraise for your school.
- Large recycling unit for your school carpark. We can provide a clothes bank/metal recycling unit that your school can place in any open area on your facility, where pupils and staff alike can donate unwanted clothes. Our clothes bank recycling units are fitted with the latest tracking technology where we can monitor how full the unit is. When our system tells us it is over 70% full, one of our assigned drivers will come to empty the bin.
We will pay you £400 per ton or 40p per KG to run this initiative. For you as a school this could mean a minimum of £1,200.00 per year (based on a ton per calendar quarter!) of vital funding for your school.
We rely on the kindness of ordinary, everyday members of the public to help us on our mission in helping our partnered charities.
We have fantastic solutions for businesses to promote recycling, do their bit for the environment and earn some extra cash!
