Keighley Volunteer Centre in Partnership with the James Project have over the last year engaged with local communities to make a difference to the area in which people live.

Ideas and projects are generated by local community groups who come forward looking for support and engagement. The Volunteer Centre helps to co-ordinate and empower these groups to take their ideas forward. Often seeking out the services and donations of time and resources from local companies and tradesmen.

We have been able to engage with and build an extensive range of volunteers who have selflessly given up their time and energy to make a difference to their local area. This initiative has helped to engage with people of all ages and diverse communities by empowering individuals to be proud of the community in which they live and want to make a difference.

By placing Recycling bins in the local area, and raising awareness of the projects we work on will help us to fund and ensure this work continues.

What we'll deliver:

  • At two prime sites across the Bradford District, we aim to place two clothing recycling bins at a cost of £500 each
  • The clothing is then washed, ironed by volunteers and sent for resale in our own charity shop
  • These bins will be emptied on a weekly basis and taken to a recycling centre

Why it's a great idea:

Too much clothing is sent to landfill.

This equates to £25 million every year . This is waste and needs to stop.

Do you realise it can take between 30 - 40 years for nylon clothing to decompose at landfill.

This clothing recycling project is the first step in helping to reduce this unnecessary waste. Not only are we making our environment cleaner, and giving a cleaner world for future generations, this project also helps to make a difference to local communities.


Steps to get it done:

  • By engaging with schools, colleges and community centres we aim to make the local area more resourceful
  • We aim to educate the local community that recycling is the way forward.
