TEXTILE FACTS:

  • Clothes and textiles should never be thrown away.
  • You can donate items that are clean and good condition to local charity shops or voluntary organisations who will be able to reuse them, or can always be donated to a local jumble sale or a clothes swap event
  • You can even donate unusable items (e.g. torn or ripped clothes, single socks) but keep them separate from good quality materials and label bags as rags.
  • Most clothes and textiles, regardless of their condition, can be recycled at all of Merseyside and Halton's Household Waste Recycling Centres.
