Saltney-based company Dee Tex will be placing pink clothes recycling banks around Flintshire to raise money for local charities.

A NEW Flintshire enterprise aimed at raising money for local charities has been set up in Saltney.

Dee-Tex, a textile recycling company, will be installing pink clothing recycling banks, with proceeds going to local causes.

Brian McManus of Dee-Tex, said: “The banks are bright pink as we want people to recognise them and associate them with local causes, not some obscure semi charitable cause based in London.

“All the benefits of our pink banks stay here. We are placing them with local community organisations and charities, who will get money back based on the weight of clothes collected.

Clothes donated to the pink banks will be collected by volunteers and staff, taken to the Saltney recycling centre and sorted.

The good quality items will be sold in our charity shops in Wrexham, Rhyl and Shotton, which will be opened later this year.

“Our first five pink banks are being placed with Save the Family, The War Memorial institute in Queensferry, Kinnerton Village Hall, Gronant Institute and Treuddyn Community Hall,” added Brian.
