TASC launched our clothes recycling scheme in 2023 in partnership with ambulance services and textile recycling companies across the UK. Our new scheme provides a valuable source of revenue for TASC at no financial risk to the charity.
We kindly ask that when donating your clothing, please do not leave bags outside the clothing banks.
If you feel you have the perfect location and space for one of our textile banks, please contact us by completing the form below.
Please don’t use the banks to recycle bric-a-brac, plastic, toys or electrical items.
The donated clothing, shoes, handbags and textiles are collected by our recycling partners and wearable clothing is re-used, usually sold in under-developed countries. Any textiles that are un-wearable are recycled into such items as industrial wipers and car upholstery and also re-used in the production of many other items. The income generated from clothes recycling is split between TASC and the relevant ambulance service to help fund the wellbeing of our ambulance family.
Please don’t leave your clothes beside the bank or anywhere else on ambulance station grounds. If the bank is full please call the phone number displayed on the textile bank to report the full bank, and then please try again over the next couple of days.
Our services are completely confidential and anything you share with us will be kept in the strictest confidence and in line with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
