Recycle With Michael!
A fun new way of recycling whilst raising money for your school and The Salvation Army.
Our new Recycle With Michael scheme is designed to be fun and informative for primary school aged children. We can provide a colourful clothing bank featuring Michael to located be on school property, as well as supplying branded bags for children to take home and fill up with their donations. All they need to do is bring them back to school, pop them in the bank and we’ll do the rest.
When the bank is full our local collectors will come to empty it and we can provide feedback on the weight of donations received. The school will then be rewarded with an amount of money dependent on the weight of donations collected as a thank you from SATCoL.
The textiles we receive will be reused or recycled wherever possible, with profit from the sale of the donations being gift-aided to The Salvation Army.
Benefits for schools:
• Free educational materials provided including poster, information pack and DVD featuring Gary Lineker and Chris Tarrant
• Chance to earn rewards for school as well as raise money for charity
• Free press office support to help profile your school’s activities in the local media
• Feedback on the amount of textiles collected made available to the school and local authority

Throwing away clothing is not only wasteful but is also harmful to the environment.
