Believe it or not, your old textiles, clothing, shoes and mobile phones can earn us some money!
Working with our recycling partners, ‘BIU Group, the Yorkshire Air Ambulance receive an agreed percentage of the sale of the recycled materials. It is as simple as that!
Good quality items which can be reused are sold to second-hand clothing traders in the UK and worldwide. 'End of life' garments are recycled into industrial wipers and cloths, mattress filling, insulation and new fibres.
