We’ve answered some of your most frequently asked questions to help you with your clothes collection journey.
How does Collect My Clothes work?
We collect your unwanted clothes from your chosen location and make sure that they’re ethically recycled or reused, with most being sent to Africa or Eastern Europe to provide people with affordable clothing. For every ton of clothes collected, we will send a minimum of £200 to one of our five partner charities (which you get to choose!). Learn more about how we work.
Do my clothes need to be put in a bag?
Yes – your clothes must be in a clean bag. If you’re leaving your clothes outside for us to collect, make sure that the bag is waterproof!
What clothes do you accept?
We accept all sorts of everyday clothes, as long as they’re in a re-wearable condition. This includes shirts, jumpers, t-shirts, coats, jumpsuits, dresses, skirts, jeans, trousers etc. We even collect toys! Learn more about what we do and don’t accept.
Do you accept baby clothes?
Yes! We accept clothing for babies and children, as long as they’re in a re-wearable condition.

What happens if I am not at home?

I’ve made a mistake, can I amend it?
Yes, as long as you let us know the day prior to your collection. One option is to tell us when we contact you to arrange your clothes collection. Alternatively, you can phone us on 0800 014 2412 and we’ll rectify the address for you.
