Helping you to manage your clothing bank sites

Our fleet of 120+ of the latest Euro-6 vehicles pick up from 3000+ collection points each week in England, Wales and Scotland, including clothes banks and charity shops.

We already work with charities to help them establish clothing bank estates that span the whole UK. They leverage their relationship with supermarket chains to agree prime locations, and once they have those agreements in place, we can do the rest.

    We supply and place branded clothing banks for national (and regional) charities.

    We can also maintain and refurbish all the sites in a clothing bank programme, with no direct cost to you.

    Our dedicated team also closely monitors the performance of each site in your clothing bank estate. This means we rapidly identify sites that perform well – or poorly – and constantly look at developing the location map to make sure the right banks are in the right places for the right customers.

    ``CTR has provided collection services to Sense for nearly 10 years. Their levels of professionalism and service resulted in Sense awarding CTR our whole estate in recent years. We have also been able to recommend CTR to other charities as the textile recycler of choice, based on our experience.``
    Paul Hale Donated Stock Manager, Sense
    “Cats Protection have worked with CTR since 2016 to support our shop’s recycling needs and we have always been highly satisfied. In particular, the communication from CTR is always completely transparent… and there is always a quick response and remedy to any issues that arise. We look forward to our continuing partnership with CTR.”
    Ian Trotter Interim Retail Business Manager, Cats Protection

    Data in the palm of your hand

    Meet our ACTRA technology platform, the first of its kind in our industry. Our partners in the charity sector use it for everything from checking the volumes collected to all their payment data.

    When we wanted to offer our charity partners a fully-integrated, end-to-end tracking and management system for their stores, there was just one problem. Such a system didn’t exist. So we built our own.

    We’ve designed and built it to be bespoke to the charity sector. It lets you see everything that’s happening in real-time, from the big picture to the tiniest detail. You can see how much is being collected from your stores and clothing banks down to the last kilo, and how often it’s being picked up.

    That means we can calculate collection payments immediately and you can rest assured that there is total transparency and accuracy.
