One way through which Ummah Welfare Trust’s 100% donations policy has been maintained, after the help of Allah, is through a nationwide clothes recycling scheme. Old clothes can be donated at Ummah Welfare Trust’s clothing banks which are then recycled or sold at charity shops to generate a revenue.
Ummah Welfare Trust has over 160 clothing banks across the UK, ensuring that thousands of tonnes of old clothes are recycled and don’t end up as waste. Selling second-hand goods prevent them from going to landfill and ease the pressure on using new resources to create and purchase more goods. Alhamdulillah, the proceeds help cover the charity’s administration costs.

What to Avoid Donating in Clothing Banks
Rubbish and surplus household goods should not be disposed of in Ummah Welfare Trust’s clothing banks. Ummah Welfare Trust incurs more costs having to dispose of these items appropriately. Items you shouldn’t donate include:
- Broken items
- Dirty clothing/items
- Old/torn Islamic items and literature
- Damaged items and electrical equipment
- General rubbish
Please do not overfill your bags so that they easily fit into the chutes and do not tear.
Washed, pressed and properly bagged clothing are ideal, keeping costs down and helping Ummah Welfare Trust recycle them in the best manner.
