Essex Search & Rescue is very pleased to announce a long term partnership with BIU Group Ltd, the leading UK clothes and textile recycling that helps charities raise money by collecting and selling your old and unwanted clothes, shoes, and textiles. By placing your donated items into one of the recycling banks around the county, you are helping Essex SAR gain the much needed funds we need to operate. We receive no external or regular funding, and the partnership with BIU is essential to our long term success.

BIU has a series of clothes recycling bins around the county of Essex, and to find your nearest bin, click on the bin below. Have a clear out, and help us out!


Are you a local business, organisation or council with a publicly accessible  car park, and would like to help us out by hosting a BIU clothes recycling bin? Let us know and we will put you in contact! We’re particularly looking for sites in the Basildon, Brentwood, Castle Point, Epping Forest, Maldon, Southend on Sea, Tendring, Thurrock, and  and Uttlesford council areas
