How to dispose of textiles.

Clothes and other textiles in a textile container in a recycling centre.

Do not dispose of textiles at home. Take this waste to your local recycling centre (RC).

  • Which RC container

    Use the textiles bank.

    Ensure items are clean, dry and bagged.

  • Which RC accept this waste

    All our recycling centres accept textiles.

  • Further information

    Clothes, shoes and other textiles that still have some life left in them will be sorted and sent for reuse. Old and well-worn clothing will be recycled by shredding and used in the ‘flocking’ industry as car seat filler.

    • sell your items, or donate them to a charity shop, if they're in good condition.
