School Uniform Recycling Scheme - Down Area


Do you have school uniform items that your child no longer needs?

If so you can donate them to one of the schools participating in the School Uniform Recycling Scheme.

We all know that rising uniform costs can cause a financial strain on families, so this scheme was created to try and ease that burden by recycling uniforms, coats, bags, shoes and PE kits that are in good clean condition. Please bring items along to one of the participating schools (your child's school will have told you if they are participating). Last year over 1,300 uniforms were recycled in Downpatrick, Castlewellan, Newcastle and Ballynahinch with fourteen primary schools and thirteen secondary schools getting involved in the scheme.

If your child needs a school uniform please come along to one of the Free Uniform Recycling Events:

Downpatrick - 29th July 09:30am - 07:00pm -  Ballymote Centre,

Newcastle - 12th August 09:30am - 07:00pm - SERC Castlewellan Rd

Ballynahinch  - 8th August 09:30am -07:00pm  - Market Square
