About Us

Welcome to Choice Textile – a family business founded on the core beliefs and values of our Managing Director and Founder, Aloysius Ihezie. With a deep concern for the environment, a passion for education, and the charity sector, Aloysius has instilled these principles into the fabric of our recycling business.

Operating from our two main warehouses in London and Milton Keynes, we are strategically positioned to offer a comprehensive collection service for charity shops and community organizations throughout London and the South of England.

Since our first shop collections in 2001, Choice Textile has become an integral part of the UK charity sector. We have kept millions of books, textiles and other items in circulation by reusing or recycling them, contributing to a sustainable future.

Our modern fleet and dedicated team of friendly and hard-working drivers ensure that our clients receive a service that is second to none. Many of our staff have been with Choice for years, consistently delivering the highest level of support to our charity shop partners.

At Choice Textile, we prioritise customer service and have a fully staffed Customer Service team. We are here to support our charity shop clients every step of the way. We are open to requests from other charity shops and community organisations seeking sustainable support in managing excess stock. Contact us today, and let’s discuss how we can personalise our support for your organisation.

Ensuring health and safety is a top priority for us. As a proud member of the Textile Recycling Association, and the Charity Retail Association, Choice Textile carries comprehensive public liability insurance and holds a full waste carriers’ license. You can trust us to handle your donations responsibly.

At Choice Textile, we are dedicated to providing first-class service to our charity shop partners, creating sustainable environments, and supporting education in global communities through our partnership with theĀ Ihezie Foundation. Join us in making a difference.

Our History

Choice was founded in 1999 by the Managing Director, Aloysius Ihezie. In the beginning, the company concentrated on collecting, sorting and exporting used clothing to countries in Africa. Over subsequent years, Choice carefully developed many further opportunities for people to recycle unwanted goods and, at the same time, give more support to different charities.

As the company grew and as a result of increasing research and innovation, Choice now collects and recycles a much wider range of non-textile materials such as books, bric-a-brac, electrical items and household items.

During this same period, Choice introduced textile, book and media bank initiatives making it even easier for the public to recycle unused items and for our partner charities to benefit from the extra income this generated.
