Recycling textiles and shoes

The textile banks in the city are provided on behalf of the following charity: The Salvation Army and Salvation Army Trading Company.

Unwanted clothes, shoes and household textiles can be recycled at textile recycling banks across the city. Please place your items into a plastic bag and tie pairs of shoes together if possible.

All textile recycling banks across the city are privately operated and are not the responsibility of the council. They are emptied once or twice a week.

However, if you notice a textile recycling bank is full and needs emptying then please call the telephone number on the bank to request it be emptied.
