Clothes and textiles

You can take unwanted, torn or worn clothes, sheets and pairs of shoes to your local Recycling Centre. Around 65% is reused and 35% is recycled.

Clothing in good condition can be taken to a charity shop, local jumble sale or swap shop.

Important information about building and DIY waste

Any waste produced by tradespeople or builders you hired to carry out improvements, repair or alterations to your home is classed as business waste and can’t be disposed of at any of our Recycling Centres. Always ask a tradesperson to include waste disposal in their quote. If you are recycling or disposing of business waste, visit the business waste page.
