How it works

This short video gives you an overview of how to donate clothing to us and what happens after you put them in one of our recycling banks. We kindly ask that when donating your clothing, please do not leave bags outside the clothing banks.

From everyone at The Fire Fighters Charity, thank you for helping us to support members of our UK fire family.

Recycling Income

We run a successful recycling scheme which provides a valuable source of revenue for the Charity at no financial risk to the Charity.

Calling all fire stations

Who will be our best clothes recycling fire station in England, Scotland and Wales in 2024?

Our Bag it and Bank It Recycling Championship is back. We're asking stations across the country to see how much clothing and textiles they and their local community can recycle, and we’re aiming to reach £100,000 during the month of January.

The competition is once again split into regions and the best station in England, Scotland and Wales will receive a prize for their station as well as the coveted 'Rag' trophy.
