Thank you to everyone who has participated in the Bag it and Bank it January recycling Championship to date. There is just under a week to go until we crown the England, Wales and Scotland champions! Could your station be in line for the trophy?

There’s still all to play for, so we’re asking fire stations and members of the public across the country for one last January push.

But what should you do if the bank on your local station is full?

Firstly, please call the phone number displayed on the textile bank to report it. Our recycling partners will then arrange to collect it. Please do not leave clothes beside the bank or anywhere else on fire station grounds. It should be emptied within a couple of days, so please try again then.

Don’t forget to we have a toolkit full of useful items such as posters and social media posts to help you promote your bank. You can find the toolkit here.
