You can book a free textile bag collection as part of our bulky waste service.
You need to place the textiles in a bag and clearly label it 'textiles'. We will take the bag, so do not use anything you want to keep.
We can collect:
- paired shoes
- pillowcases and sheets
- coats and jackets
- scarves and gloves
We cannot collect:
- very dirty items
- sleeping bags
Once we collect the textiles, they will be sorted for recycling. The plastic bags will be separated and sent on for recycling at another facility.
Other disposal options
Clothing that is in good condition can be reused by:
- donating to charity
- selling online
- selling at a boot sale
- depositing at a textile bank
We work with ASTCO to provide a number of textile banks across the town.
All materials collected from the clothing banks are re-used and help reduce landfill.
To report a full or damaged bank, please call ASTCO on 01507 466159.
