Reduce, Reuse and Raise Funds for Your Community

How Does It Work?

What Happens to the Donations?

Clothing is taken to Clyde Recycling’s modern sorting facility where it is sorted, labelled, and exported to well established partners in Europe, Africa and South America for resale.


Clothing and textiles that are not fit for resale are washed and repurposed as cleaning cloths and mop heads.


Textiles are the UK’s fastest growing household waste stream. By reusing and recycling textiles we can greatly reduce the amount we send to landfill and give unwanted items a new lease of life. With an estimated 300,000 tonnes of used clothing going to landfill, we want to make a difference - and by working together, we can!

What About the Money?

Textiles are measured per tonne with a proportion of the value being donated to Lintel Trust.


Lintel Trust will receive £200 per tonne, which will be restricted to projects serving our area.


Community-led projects can then apply for small grants (£500) to be spent improving lives and the environment in our area.

Roles and Responsibilities

Clyde Recycling are fully responsible for the cleaning, maintenance, and regular emptying of the clothing banks. They provided the Lintel Trust branded recycling bank to be placed in a prominent place in an accessible community area.


We have a direct number to contact Clyde Recycling should the clothing bank be full or damaged and they will respond the same working day.
