Frequently Asked Questions

How do I recycle clothing, shoes, toys and textiles?

These should never be placed in your household recycling bin because they cause contamination in the recycling process and clothing or shoelaces can jam and damage machinery. The sorting process is not designed to recover these types of materials and they are often damaged or dirty by the time they are compacted and mixed in with recycling containers. These products should be cleaned and placed in a charity clothing bin, donated to a charity drop-off or pick-up service, sold through newspapers or online, or given away to friends or family.
