Recycle Week 2016 - Clothes Aid 2024

Recycle Week 2016

Join in with us and play your part in this year’s Recycle Week 12-18 September 2016


Whether it’s a once-favourite Levi’s denim jacket, a pair of Dr Martens boots from our student days or that designer handbag from an ex-boyfriend, many of us have perfectly good clothes and accessories lurking at the back of our wardrobes that we no longer wear.

Maybe you’ve forgotten all about them, they don’t fit anymore or your taste has simply changed since making the purchase – but that doesn’t mean they won’t be perfect for someone else.

Clothes Aid is the UK’s largest fully-licensed clothing collection business and our mission is a simple one: we’re helping our six partner UK charities and the planet by preventing clothes that are still in good condition going to landfill.

So with Recycle Week 2016 happening between 12-18 September, now is the ideal time to clear out your wardrobes and recycle any unwanted clothing.


So you might be on top of plastic, paper, bottle and food recycling but what about that tailored suit you no longer wear or the dress that’s just a little too small now? We make it so easy to recycle these items.

Look out for one of our bags dropping through household doors across the country over the next 10 days, or even fill up and use one of your own plastic bags with your unwanted clothes and bric-a-brac items…. Then just phone our helpline number to book in a collection… it’s that simple. We save you the hassle of having to drive to a nearby recycling plant.

To date, we have raised more than £9million for charities including Macmillan Cancer Support, NSPCC, Make-A-Wish Foundation UK, Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice, Children’s Hospice Association Scotland (CHAS), and Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance (SCAA).


To arrange a collection, call Clothes Aid’s helpline on 020 7288 8545 (open Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm) or visit
