Requesting a collection is as effortless as a few clicks online. Simply submit an online collection request, and we'll be at your doorstep, ready to collect your generous donations.

Clothes Recycling Initiatives for Schools in Guildford
We invite local schools, colleges, and the University of Surrey in Guildford to join forces with Collection 4 Clothes in a collective effort to promote sustainability and environmental consciousness.
This initiative aims to encourage students, staff, and the wider community to donate unwanted clothing items, thereby reducing textile waste and contributing to a more eco-friendly future.
Schools and colleges can play a pivotal role in fostering a culture of sustainability among their younger students. By incorporating discussions about recycling and environmental responsibility into their curriculum, teachers can instil in their pupils the importance of conscious consumption and waste reduction.
Additionally, organising school-wide clothing donation drives can provide students with hands-on experience in contributing to a worthy cause.
Partnering with us means we will collect and distribute donated clothing to those in need, fostering a spirit of community engagement and social responsibility.
The University of Surrey, as a leading educational institution, can set an exemplary standard for sustainability by actively promoting the Collection 4 Clothes recycling drive among its diverse student population. By establishing designated clothing collection points on campus and organising awareness campaigns, the university can encourage students to adopt eco-friendly practices and contribute to a more sustainable campus environment.
Raising Funds for Your School
By participating in this initiative, your school, college or University can potentially earn £400 per ton or 40p per KG. This can translate to a minimum of £1,200.00 per year, based on a ton per calendar quarter, providing essential financial support. Your school's involvement not only champions recycling and charitable causes but also secures vital financial backing for the institution.
Clothes Recycling Initiatives for Businesses in Guildford
The fashion industry is a major contributor to environmental pollution. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the textile industry produces 17 to 20 million tons of textile waste annually. This waste ends up in landfills, where it decomposes and releases methane gas, a potent greenhouse gas. Clothing recycling is an important way to reduce textile waste and its environmental impact.
There are a number of ways that businesses in Guildford can support a local clothes recycling drive.
- Donate unwanted clothing to a local charity shop.
- Partner with Collection 4 Clothes and help us collect and recycle unwanted clothing from your business.
- Host a clothing swap event at your business.
- Spread the word about local clothing recycling drives to your employees and customers.
By supporting a local clothes recycling drive, businesses can make a positive impact on the environment and their community.
Together, we can foster a community that thrives on eco-conscious practices, leaving a lasting imprint on both our local surroundings and the global environment.
