TextilesReduce - NoRe-use - YesRecycle - Yes

Textiles can be recycled.

We accept any textiles at the Green Centre including items which are ripped, stained or in a very poor condition. Items which are not able to be sold will be recycled through our textiles recycling partner where EVERY piece will be used in some way.

By purchasing 2nd hand clothing and textiles at car boot sales or charity shops you are reducing demand for new items.

Recycling 1kg of textiles saves:

- 3.6kg of Co2 emissions
- 6000 litres of water
- 0.3kg of fertilizers
- 0.2kg of pesticides.
