Recycle your winter clothes and bag a saving

With the leaves turning brown and the sky grey, you could help save money that could be spent on essential services by recycling your old winter clothes. Your efforts could also help you go green by supporting the environment.

Clothes and home textiles can be recycled easily everywhere in Surrey and doing so could save up to £4 million a year as it costs more to dispose of than recycle them. If recycled, they are either reused in the UK or abroad or turned into new products.

To recycle clothes and home textiles, make sure they’re clean and dry then put them in a standard-sized carrier bag and leave it next to your bin on your usual collection day. There are also textiles recycling banks at Community Recycling Centres.
