Textiles and clothes

Find your nearest textile recycling point.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) update

All our textile banks are now closed. During the current situation, please DO NOT take unwanted clothes to local textile banks or charity shops.

You can recycle your unwanted clothes, textiles and shoes at the recycling points listed below. Put them into the clothes bank inside a plastic bag or in loose.

Where there isn’t a separate shoe bank, you can put your shoes in a bag or tied together as a pair into the textiles recycling bank.

Please don’t put duvets or pillows in the textile recycling bins as they are too big and block up the containers. Unfortunately, these are not easily recyclable and can be disposed of as rubbish.

Find your nearest textile recycling site below.

The textile locations are green on the map.

What happens to the clothes and textiles?

Some textiles and shoes are reused while others are re-manufactured either within the UK or across the globe.
