Think before you recycle

Our Street Wardens are appealing to residents not to put the following items in the clothing recycling banks, which are situated at recycling points across the district. These banks are for clothing related textiles only. 

• Cuddly toys
• Quilts and sleeping bags
• Cushions
• Blankets
• Settee and chair covers
• Cushion covers
• Towels

Unfortunately by putting the listed items in the clothing banks they are ending up in landfill rather than being recycled. Many of these items could go to charity shops where they can be reused and loved again. Alternatively, some dog and cat charities often need towels and blankets and may be looking for

For more information on the items you can recycle and where you can take them to, please visit the Recycling banks page in the Bins & recycling section of the Council's website.
