As a nation we throw away over one million tonnes of clothing every year and DEFRA consider textiles as the fastest growing item entering the waste stream.

With cash4clothes you use any bags, and then just call their dedicated number to arrange a collection. Our collectors will weigh your bags and pay 50p per kg for the items-this equates to £500.00 per tonne-or £5.00 for a 10kg bag. All clothing collected by cash4clothes is sold to importers and wholesalers in eastern and Western Europe, Africa and Asia for reuse as clothing. Regardless of whether clothes are given to charities, clothing banks, council collections or cash4clothes, this is where the goods are sold. 80% of unwanted clothing goes for reuse as clothes and the other 20% enters the recycling industry for mattress stuffing, automotive applications, socks, blankets and the industrial wiper trade.
As a nation we throw away over one million tonnes of clothing every year and DEFRA consider textiles as the fastest growing item entering the waste stream. If you want to donate part or all or your proceeds from a cash4clothes collection to a charity, there are options on their website to enable this to be done efficiently www.justgiving.com can covert a £10 donation.
