Surrey Prepared

During April Surrey Prepared is focussing on the actions we can take as a community to help those around us. If you’re part of a community group or have a neighbour or relative who may need extra support, you could help by sharing the information below and offering some support to act on them if needed.

Recycle your clothes and home textiles

Your clothes carry your memories with them. But because recycled clothes and textiles can be worn again either in the UK or abroad, the good times can go on.

Just put clean and dry clothes and textiles in a standard-sized, tied carrier bag and visit or download the Recycle for Surrey app to find out how to recycle where you live.
