While we don't offer kerbside textile recycling, residents have several options for reusing and recycling textiles.

Donate textiles to charity shops

Most charity shops are happy to take textiles such as clothing, bedding and curtains as long as they’re clean and in good condition.

Sell on second-hand marketplaces

Online marketplaces are a popular way to recycle clothing and other textiles. These platforms, also known as 'preloved' websites, include Shpock, Vinted, Depop and eBay.

Recycle at supermarkets

Many supermarkets, such as Tesco and Dunelm offer in-store recycling. Simply bag your unwanted textiles and drop off when you shop. 

Drop off at the recycling centre (HWRC)

You can take clothing, bedding, curtains, sheets and towels to Redbridge Recycling Centre.

As a very last resort textiles can be put into your green bin for kerbside collection.
