About. DB Textile Collections

A family run business trading for over 40 years in Northamptonshire.

Our door to door collection service is unique to the industry as the first to offer a special collection service or collection by appointment, for missed bags for any reason.

We are also one if not the only commercial partner to supply our charity shops with stock on a weekly basis.

Since our service started in 2007 we have paid over 2 million pounds through our door to door collection to The Air Ambulance Service.

We are very proactive with the authorities to combat bogus or illegal collections and report all instances, Our aim is to stop used clothing being dumped in landfill which annually equates to, in 2015 350,000 tonnes from households went to landfill, 300,000 tonnes in 2016, a 14% down and a drop in the right direction.

Helping. The Environment

Our team is passionate about understanding the impact our business has on the environment, which is why we are looking to revolutionise our industry.

With the busy lives the population now leads, companies are striving to find ever increasing ways to make the items we buy more convenient to use and cheaper to purchase. Over time, this has impacted our environment significantly.

But it’s time to take responsibility and make a change!

Our aim over the next 5 years is to half the number of plastic bags we currently distribute by replacing with leaflets and the introduction of our new online booking collection service, which will eliminate the need for excess plastic bag distribution.

Help us reduce the use of plastic bags
