Textiles Recycling Scheme for Schools - Recycle with Michael

We have teamed up with Salvation Army Trading Company Ltd to help schools and their communities recycle unwanted textiles.

Schools are welcome to join the Recycle with Michael scheme, they will be provided with a colourful clothes bank, depicting the children’s recycling champion, Michael.  In addition they will receive, branded bags to put any clothing, shoes and textiles into, plus posters, a reward chart, stickers, a DVD and an information pack - so it’s fun and informative for children to take part in.

There are no fees or hidden costs for the schools, and they receive money depending on the weight of donations collected – for every tonne of textiles donated, £200 will be given back to the school to spend as they wish.
