Default Clothing collection in Irthlingborough,Northants-any info anyone?

This is quite a random post and will be amazed if anyone can help me, but a few weeks ago I had a flier come through my door regarding a local company in Irthlingborough who collect unwanted clothes etc and pay 40p a Kg and then distribute them to charities. I have had a massive clearout but cannot find the flier anywhere.

I don't suppose there is anyone who lives in this area that has the number? A long shot I know, but worth a try!

just to clarify... they dont distribute them to charities if they are paying you. plus the majority of clothes you take into a charity shop is then sold on to rag merchants, again not given abroad... they are sold on to other countries by the rag merchant

best thing to do is look under the recycling catagory in your yellow business directory, and phone and ask....if they pay....

The price per kg varies from area to area, and what they will take, you might find the higher price per kg paid is only for top end clothes, where as someone offering a lower price per kg, will take bedding, towels, curtains etc...so overall you will be better off taking the lower price per kg, as you are also selling the heavier bedding etc too
daydream fund total ..........not enough....lol...

I've got a flier for them if you still need the info. I live in the West so they must operate all over. There is an email also.

Only a part of it will (might) go to charity, who do you think pays them. It all comes out of the sale of the clothes
and the charity get a tiny proportion of whats left of the profit.

some Rag merchants 'attach' themselves to charities, and give them a very small donation or amount per kg for using their logos for endorsing their recycling work, sprat to catch a mackerel springs to mind...

Hi
Is this what you were looking at? - it is based in Station Road, Irthlingborough. It states that they export the clothes to mainly Eastern Europe and "By selling your clothes to us and giving the money directly, your favourite charity will recieve up to TEN TIMES more than the normal charity bag collection donation!"
I think this may mean that if you sell your clothes to them and then give the money you receive from them to your chosen charity (as opposed to giving the clothes to a charity bag collection instead) then your chosen charity benefits more this way round.

THANK YOU TO ALL WHO TAKE TIME TO POST COMPETITIONS
