Introduction of the scheme
“Community Used Clothes Recycling Bank Scheme" is a community participation scheme (the scheme) launched by the Home Affairs Department. The scheme facilitates the public to donate used clothes in support of environmental protection and charities.

The scheme is a partnership programme among non-governmental organizations including Friends of the Earth (HK), the Government and District Councils. Suitable sites were identified by District Officers for placing old clothes recycling banks. These sites include entrances of community halls/community centers, sitting-out areas, parks, sports centers, libraries, and, with the agreement of owners' corporations/property management agents, common areas of private buildings/commercial centers.

Only approved charity institutions and trust of a public character under Section 88 of the Inland Revenue Ordinance are eligible to operate the banks. Interested organizations please fill in the application form and return to us. (Please refer to Chinese page)
