Are you clearing out your old clothes?

Two thirds of Surrey residents don’t realise that underwear, socks and tights can be recycled. Research has shown that residents know that clothes, and home textiles like sheets and towels, can all be recycled, but are more likely to throw personal items in the bin – which is bad for the environment and expensive for the taxpayer.

Recycling bin

All clothes and home textiles can be recycled. They’re either sorted to be used again in the UK or abroad, or recycled into new products like felt, insulation or stuffing.

Clothes and home textiles which are clean and dry can be left in recycling banks at community recycling centres as well as in many car parks in town centres and at stations and supermarkets.

For more information about recycling in Runnymede visit the recycling textiles page.
