Unauthorised Clothing Bins
Here at Recycled Clothing Banks, we work with local councils and organisations across the region to stop unauthorised clothing bins.
Unauthorised clothing bins are a headache for everyone: the council, the local community, genuine recycled clothing companies and legitimate registered charities.
How can you spot an illegal bin?
- The bin will be in very poor condition
- There is no wording that explains the aim of the charity
- There is no contact information available
- The bill is full, overspilling with bags left outside and generally hazardous
Recycled Clothing Banks will happily remove these unauthorised clothing bins from your area and make a £100 donation per bin to our charity partner, HandsOn London supporting our homeless community.
CHECK / REPORT A BIN
If you have a feeling a bin might not be genuine then before you put your clothes in why not check - we can search our comprehensive database which works with over 27 major councils around the country and major organisations from registered charities. We answer all emails within 24 hours giving you a piece of mind that your kind donation is going to the right organisation and if it’s an illegal bin it’s reported and removed.
We work incredibly hard with many communities and charities, supporting them in various ways from providing clothing bins and reimbursing them with much-needed funds. By installing one of our bins, all of the textiles we collect and pay cash for could be used to offer invaluable financial support to community initiatives in your local area.
We are always happy to talk about fundraising schemes with local councils and we enjoy great relationships with our clients in:
Educational settings - Hospitality industry - Places of Worship - National and Local Charities - Shopping areas – Sports centres/Health clubs – Libraries - Industrial business developments
We can pay you up to £400 per tonne for your reusable pre-loved textiles donations.
If this is of interest to you and your local community, please contact our helpful and friendly team today on 020 3903 9933 or contact us below
“For over 12 months we have tried to get this unsightly and illegal recycled clothing bin removed from our premises. With no response from the company, we contacted Recycled Clothing Banks and within a few days the bin was removed, the rubbish cleared and the area was left tidy. Not only that, but Recycled Clothing Banks made a £100 donation to HandsOn London, supporting the homeless community, for the scrap value of the bin. Thank you!”

“As a private land owner incorporating 4 flats and several shops, these illegal bins were put on my land without permission. For years, my tenants have been complaining and I have made countless attempts to contact the company responsible for these bins, the local council and even the Mayor of Birmingham, all of whom did nothing to get them removed. Having contacted Recycled Clothing Banks and reported the bins through their website, the team came and removed the bins and cleared away the associated debris within 24 hours. These illegal bins have caused me so much stress and unpleasantness, but Recycled Clothing Banks have now lifted a weight off of my shoulders. Thank you.”
