Why bin old favourites? Recycling lets them live on
Did you know that even worn, holey and broken items can be recycled rather than thrown in your general rubbish bin?
All clothes and most home textiles can be recycled in Surrey. This includes boots, trainers, tights, jumpers, blankets, bags, belts, underwear, towels, and bedding such as sheets, pillowcases and duvet covers. Stuffed items like pillows, cushions and duvets/quilts can’t be recycled; neither can clothes and home textiles left in bin bags, untied carrier bags or recycling bins.
To recycle clothes and home textiles, make sure they’re clean and dry, put them in a standard-sized carrier bag and then check how they can be recycled where you live. To do that you can use the recycling search tool at surreyep.org.uk or download the Surrey Recycles app.
