Textiles and shoes

The kerbside service

The council has provided kerbside collections of textiles since 2003.

The bags for textiles are red and see-through. When you put a red bag out for collection, the crew will leave you a new bag for next time. Printed on the bags will be instructions, a list of suitable items and I & G Cohen's details, as well as the name of our contractor, Palm Recycling Limited. 

These textile bags can be used as and when they are needed. The collection day is the same as for all your recycling and is shown as a blue square on your collection calendar. 

If you do not have a red bag and want to use the service straight away, then you can put sutiable items into a bag and place next to the wheeled bin. Please make sure the bag is see through and label as textiles so that the collection crew are aware of the contents. Alternatively you can request a red bag online or contact us by phone.

Suitable items include:

  • Clothes
  • Shoes (in pairs)
  • Household linens such as curtains and duvet covers
  • Pillowcases
  • Towels and tea towels
  • Curtains
  • Handbags and belts

Please note that duvets, quilts, cushions and pillows are not suitable. Please also make sure all items are clean and kept dry.

All residents can take part in the fortnightly kerbside recycling collections.

If in doubt please phone us.
