Textile collections

Textiles that can be collected including clothes, shoes, bed linen, towels and hats

Textiles 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 a 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

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.
