Default Cash for clothes recycling in Preston area?

Hi,

A long-shot but does anyone know of a company who do the clothes recycling where they collect bags/weigh them and give you money in Preston/Leyland area?

I have seen a van near where I work in Preston with a mobile number on but have never written it down and struggling to find a local company on the Internet.

Many thanks

There's a local one to me in the midlands and they give you 50p per kilo of clothes. I think you'd be best off selling them if you can, even at a car boot you'd get more.

I have just found one in Chorley about a mile away so should be ok

35p a kilo (most others were 40p) but saves me driving to drop the clothes off.

I started with around 20 bags and have sold about 10 bags worth of the stuff on e-bay but the other stuff is a bit too worn and I wouldn't be happy to sell it I don't think

dont use the web based clothes for cash. There is alot of scope to rip you off.
