Pillowcases are not accepted in your local council's kerbside recycling or residual bin. Pillowcases can be recycled at your local Household Waste Recyling Centre.
Clothes 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. You can even donate unusable items (e.g. torn or ripped clothes, single socks) but keep separate from good quality materials and label bags as rags. Duvets, cushions and pillows are rarely wanted by charities but can be used for upcycling into draught excluders or stuffing for arts and crafts projects. You can always donate clothes to a local jumble sale or a clothes swap Shwopping event. Most clothes and textiles can be recycled at all of Merseyside's Household Waste Recycling Centres.
