Is raised every year from textiles
With your help we can continue to increase the amount of money we raise each year from various forms of recycling.
Per tonne of textiles
For each tonne of textiles that are donated to a bank on a fire station we receive on average £220 to help firefighters in need.
Fire stations have recycling banks
We have recycling locations all over the UK. You can use the map below to find the one closest to you.
The winners from last year's Bag it and Bank it Recycling Championship are listed below. The map shows how much each bank raised in January 2018.
ENGLAND: Egremont Fire Station, Cumbria Fire and Rescue Service, collected a whopping total of 11,334 KG of clothing and textiles.
WALES: Treharris Fire Station, Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service, collected 760 KG.
SCOTLAND: Bishopbriggs Fire Station, Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, collected 730 KG.
A special mention goes to Bingham Fire Station who did not let the absence of a textile bank stop them - they put the word out to the local community and managed to collect a total of 1,680 KG, putting them 4th place in England.
