Book a free textiles, clothes and small electricals collection

We have partnered with reuse charities, Little Lives UK and TRAID, to offer a convenient way to donate textiles, clothes and small electricals, using a free bookable home collection service.

Both services are available to all households, including flats, and allows you to book a collection on a day that suits you.


TRAID raises money for funds and resources to reduce the environmental and social impacts of clothing and fund international development projects to improve conditions and working practices in the textile industry.

What can you donate?

You can donate:

  • clothes
  • shoes
  • linen (bedsheets, towels, curtains). No duvets or pillows.
  • accessories (belts, scarves, handbags, gloves, etc)

You can also donate small electrical items (kettles, toasters, mobile phones, tablets etc). However please donate this at the same time as you request a clothing collection.

The service is suitable for residents who have a bundle of clothes to donate at one time. 

Any clothing that is not good enough to be passed on will be recycled by TRAID. Please ensure textiles are not dirty, greasy or oil stained before donating.

Book a TRAID collection

You can book a collection for a minimum of 1 large bag or 3 small bags of clothing, but TRAID encourages residents to donate more than the minimum amount, as this helps the charity to deliver a more efficient service.

Book a TRAID collection

You can also book by phone by calling 020 8733 2595.

A collector in a branded TRAID van will collect the donations from you on the agreed day.
