We've teamed up with Recycling Solutions to make it easy for you to donate. We receive an agreed percentage of the sale of the recycled materials and we raise over £30,000 every year from our recycling scheme.

All you need to do is drop off your unwanted items to one of our clothing banks located across the region.

Can you help us find a home for a recycling bank?

We are always looking for new homes for our textile banks. All that is needed is a suitable outdoor location and access for members of the public to donate their unwanted clothing and shoes.  

The ideal locations are:

  • Shops and supermarkets
  • Town/village centre car parks
  • Community centres and village halls
  • Garden Centres
  • Pubs
  • Leisure Centres

If you think you can help please email gwaac@recyclingsolutions.org.uk
