Helping charities by collecting your unwanted clothes

Public Health England (PHE) advice on the risk of handling post or freight is there is no perceived increase in risk (as of 15 March 2020).


Recycling Clothes Company are actively monitoring the rapidly evolving coronavirus situation. We are closely following advice from the UK Government/Public Health England who advise that people receiving parcels are not at risk of contracting the coronavirus.

We know that these types of viruses don’t survive long on objects such as letters or parcels. This complements the highly publicised guidance from PHE for people to wash their hands more often than usual using soap and hot water.

Our primary concern is protecting the health of our staff and our customers, as such we are providing guidance to our distributors and collection teams to help prevent the spread of any infection in line with preventative guidance from Public Health England.

We are committed to supporting our charity partner Against Breast Cancer through these challenging times by continuing to raise the vital funds they require to continue their vital breast cancer research.

Nevertheless, the rapidly changing nature of the current situation demands our operations remain under continuous review. Suffice to say, there may be more changes in the coming days and weeks.
