Is your school interested in raising some much-needed cash? Why not get involved in Recycle for Essex’s School Recycling Competition?

Working in partnership with school recycling specialists Bag2School, the School Recycling Competition will offer £0.40 per kilogram of good quality clothes collected through the competition, meaning one tonne of clothing could earn your school £400!

The school that has collected the highest amount of good quality clothing per pupil by the end of January 2018 will also receive a special prize of a free textile workshop in addition to money raised.

The competition is taking place to help spread the word that there is value in our clothes; whether that is in selling good quality clothing or recycling or donating textiles to charity shops.

Registration is open now. To take part, please contact Bag2School on 01609 780 222 or register online. Bag2School will arrange to collect clothes at the end of January and Recycle for Essex will announce the winner shortly after.

Once registered, Bag2School will arrange a mutually agreed date to collect the bags, meaning schools don’t need to worry about storing clothes before collection. The Bag2School website also has helpful promotional materials to help schools publicise the clothes collection to students and parents.
