Binder Recycling Scheme

Join us in giving the gift of gender euphoria and re-home your binder!

 

 

 

What is the Binder Recycling Scheme?

We are now accepting new and used binders from our customers.We are regularly contacted by organisations looking for donations of binders. Due to the amount of requests we get asking for binder donations from ourselves we are unable to donate these directly. As we know our customers also often look for a new home for their binder when they buy a new one, we have set up a binder recycling scheme. This means our customers can choose an organisation they know are in need of binder donations and will make this process simple for them. 

 

 How do I get involved?

If you are a charity or organisation looking for used binders and would like to be featured on our site please send an email to contact@spectrumoutfitters.co.uk with some information about the aims of your organisation.

If you are a customer who is looking to be part of our binder recycling scheme, please return your binder to us at:

Spectrum Offices, Cottage Farm, Church Lane, Old Milverton, Leamington Spa. CV32 6SA.

Please also include a note of the organisation you would like to donate to and we will send this directly to them for you. You can see a full list below.

 If you are looking for a binder yourself and are not in the position where you can buy one, these organisations may be able to help!
