Recycle your clothing and support our ambulance family

Don’t let your unwanted clothes go to waste or clog up your wardrobe, recycle them in our new banks instead!

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.

    Frequently asked questions

    • What can't I donate?

      Please don’t use the banks to recycle bric-a-brac, plastic, toys or electrical items.

    • What happens to the donated clothes?

      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.

    • My local bank is full, what should I do with my bag of clothes?

      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.
