Salvation Army Trading Company Ltd (SATCoL) is the UK’s leading textile recycling and clothing collection company. Profit we receive from the sale of donated clothing is gift-aided to The Salvation Army to help fund its valuable social welfare work in communities throughout the UK and Republic of Ireland. Between 2010 and the end of 2013 alone we gift-aided £29.5 million to The Salvation Army and we couldn’t have done it without the help of the public and our partners.
Whether it’s through our 6,500 clothing banks, the 400,000 charity collection bags we deliver each week, or one of our growing network of charity shops, you can donate your old clothes to help look after the environment and raise money to support those in need.
Textiles are the UK’s fastest growing household waste stream. By reusing and recycling textiles we can greatly reduce the amount we send to landfill and give unwanted items a new lease of life.
