What is recycle with michael?


Recycle with Michael is a scheme that can raise money for your school and for charity whilst raising awareness about recycling.

When you sign up to Recycle with Michael, there is no big commitment or contract to sign – it is up to you how little or often you want to make a donation.
When you organise a donation day, we will send you collection bags for pupils to fill with their unwanted clothing and shoes and bring back to school. We also
provide downloadable support materials, including posters. We will then organise for one of our authorised collectors to pick up the donations. We follow this
with a report of how much you have donated and send a certificate for you to display at your school. The money raised from the sale of your donations is split equally between The Salvation Army and your school.

Working nationally with schools throughout the UK, we will provide you with the following:

  • A pack of branded 'Recycle with Michael' bags
  • 50% income share of the current textile market price
  • **BACS payment of income directly into your school or PTA bank account
  • Appointed collection date for a SATCoL collector to attend
  • A display certificate showing volumes of textiles collected and funds raised
  • Social media coverage if appropriate

**Payment will be made once the minimum of £25 is reached through your donations. If by the end of the year the minimum hasn't been acquired, anything outstanding will be paid directly into your school or PTA bank account.

We have put together some resources which you might find useful for lessons or assemblies. Marketing materials are also available to help promote your collection day in your school.
