Textile Recycling


Clothes Recycling Banks


It is estimated that more than 1 million tonnes of textiles are thrown away each year!  Currently we only recycle 25% of textiles and textiles account for 3% of household waste.

Roberts Recycling can re-use and recycle almost any type of wearable textile, including Shirts, Shoes, Belts Etc.

Textiles unsuitable for re-use are then recycled and cottons & linen are cut down to be re-used as industrial wipes. Materials such as wool are 'pulled' and made into fresh yarn or re-used as felt for stuffing upholstery.

We would like to encourage our supporters to put wearable clothes, shoes and other textiles into plastic bags and take them to a textile bank.  Textile banks are located at:

WORKPLACES - Textile Recycling Boxes

Could your workplace support our textile recycling challenge by having one of these boxes on your premises? The boxes are 88cm(w) x 88cm(d) x 120cm (h) so are the perfect size for your reception area or office. Having one of these boxes would encourage all staff to donate their old or unwanted clothes and by doing so raising awareness and funds for your local baby hospice. Please get in touch if you could help us out and we will arrange delivery of the box and our partners, Roberts Recycling will come along and collect the items once the box is full.


CHOOLS - £200 Textile Recycling Challenge

Could your school take part in the £200 Textile recycling challenge? We are looking for 100 Schools to each raise £200 by simply recycling their old and unwanted clothes or shoes. Our target is to raise £20,000 for Little Lives here at Zoë's Place. We have partnered up with Roberts Recycling to make this challenge happen, and to make it easy for lots of you to get involved and take part.

Roberts Recycling will deliver bags for you to take away and fill, and they will then arrange a day for collection. They will then be weighed you will be given a total on how much you have raised.
Sign up today by getting in touch with Rachel by emailing
