Textile collections


Textiles which are suitable for use are collected weekly or can be recycled at community recycling centres.

Bag your textiles separately and place next to your food waste caddy on your collection day 

  • put items in  standard sized carrier bag (there is limited space on the collection vehicle)
  • tie the top (this is particularly important to keep textile dry if it rains)
  • leave out on collection day (by 6am)

Please do not use charity collection bags

Textiles we can collect

  • clothing
  • paired shoes
  • bed linen
  • blankets
  • towels
  • hats
  • handbags
  • belts
  • wellington boots

Remember - items must be clean, dry and in one small tied carrier bag placed next to your food waste bin. We cannot accept wet textiles.

We will not collect single shoes, duvets, pillows, rugs or carpets.

If your textiles are not suitable for reuse take the items to the textile banks at the Community Recycling Centres.
