Locals warned against 'unauthorised' clothes banks

Residents in Bracknell are being urged not to use "unauthorised" textiles recycling banks which have appeared in the town.

Three of these banks have been found next to genuine banks at the Great Hollands Square shopping area, the Crown Row shops, off Opladen Way and the Hanworth Shops, in Bywood.

Bracknell Forest Council said: "The problem with charity banks which have not been authorised is we do not know where the donations made end up going, and it could be that income from sales ends up in the pockets of unscrupulous individuals."
