We do not take clothing or other textiles in our recycling or non-recycling wheelie bins (or purple bags).
Clothing that is in good condition can be reused by:
- donating to charity
- selling online on sites such as eBay, Gumtree and Preloved
- selling at a bootsale
- holding a swishing event where you can swap items with friends
- depositing at a textile bank
We are working with ASTCO to increase the number of textile bank sites in the town.
All materials collected from the clothing banks are re-used, with textiles providing reusable clothing for the UK and third world countries by doing so also helping reduce waste from going into landfill.
To report a full or damaged bank, please call ASTCO on 01507 466159.
