Home Textiles Collections
In Hertfordshire alone, over 7000 tonnes of textiles are sent to landfill each year!
Residents can now book a free home collection of textiles.
Remember, while textiles are 'recyclable', they cannot go in your regular recycling bin.
Items should be placed out in clear or white bags (items in black sacks will not be taken) and tied securely, so the items do not get wet.
Please leave bags out by 6am at the boundary of your property on the day of collection, and we will collect during the day.
Items accepted; clothes, belts, handbags, curtains, towels, bed linen and paired shoes (please tie the laces together, or put a band around them to keep the pair together).
Items NOT accepted; carpets, quilts or duvets, rugs or any other material that is not clothing/textiles. Some of these items may be accepted at the local Household Waste Recycling Centres
Additionally, there are several textiles banks around the area, which you can find a list of here
