That are too knackered to go to a charity shop?!

Don't want to chuck it all to landfill as there's about 3 black bags full. Any ideas?!

Clothes recycling bank, or give them to a charity shop who will rage them and sell the rags by the kilo

Our local charity shop (British Heart Foundation) takes clothes like this, as they get paid for the rags. Check with yours before dropping the bags off.
Or at the tip recycling centre, there should be a fabric recycling centre - they recycle old clothes into roof insulation and, erm, stuff for roads.

Our all shop will take anything and sen what I can't sell for rags.

If you have knackered sheets, towels or similar you could try your local animal rescue centre too.

I take all mine to a cash for clothes place. They've never looked in the bags and payn50p a kilo. All good stuff goes on eBay!

Lots of charity shops get money for rags, paid per kilo.

Bags for school, who pay by weight.

We have a recycling area for them at the tip - have a look at your Council's website and it should list where you can take what. Definitely no reason to stick 'em in landfill.
