From the pretty impulse buy that turned out to be uncomfortable or impractical, to the comfy old faithful that’s looking a bit worse for wear these days.
If you’ve got a bra or two hiding in the back of the drawer then don’t throw them in the bin, find out what you can do with your unwanted bras below.
Household recycling collection
Bras are unsuitable for household recycling collections.
Household waste recycling centre (HWRC)
Bras can be recycled in the clothing and textile containers at household waste recycling centres across Scotland.
Other recycling collections
National charities such as Against Breast Cancer collect bras for recycling - they raise funds for the charities and most bras are sent to developing countries where these items are not readily available. You can find your nearest collection point on their websites.
What can you do?
If in worn but good condition, check if your local charity shop will accept bras.
