We think the photos speak for themselves!

The car space is in a position that can’t be missed by anyone entering or leaving the building via the car park.

Volume of unwanted clothing in recyle bin each time it was collected

The amount of clothing being recycled is staggering. The above graph shows how full the bin was on each of the collection dates. Initially the bin was collected weekly – and even then it was generally 50% full. Since August 2014, it has been collected only when full.
