Textile waste

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:

Textile banks

We are working with ASTCO to increase the number of textile bank sites in the town.ASTCO blue textile bank

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.
