We offer a free kerbside collection service for textiles. Use the search tool below to find out what to do with an item.

Put your textiles:

  • in one small carrier bag (or a small bin liner, such as a pedal bin liner)
  • alongside your bins on collection day

All clothes and home textiles can be recycled as long as they are clean and dry.

Textiles may not be be collected at the same time as other waste. Please allow until 4pm for the collection to be made.

Please do not place your textiles in black refuse sacks or charity bags.

We cannot collect textiles from communal properties. They can be taken to and disposed of at a number of Bring Sites throughout Mole Valley.

Yes please!

  • clothes like shirts, coats, tights and underwear
  • home textiles like towels, sheets and curtains

Please note we can only take one bag of textiles per household per week.

You can also recycle clothing and textiles at your local textile bank.
