Everyone in Surrey can recycle clothes and home textiles. Find out which container to put it in or where to take it with the recycling search tool.

Yes please:

  • Clothes like shirts, coats, tights and underwear
  • Home textiles like towels and sheets
  • Accessories like pairs of shoes, belts and bags

No thanks:

  • Single shoes
  • Stuffed items like cushions and duvets
  • Cuddly toys

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

What do my clothes become?

Clothes and home textiles are either sorted to be worn and used again in the UK or abroad, or recycled into useful products like felt, insulation or stuffing.

Reuse: repair and rewear

There are many ways to extend the life of clothes and home textiles you no longer need. You could donate them to charity shops, or see the repair and rewear page for other ideas including, clothes swapping parties, repair cafes and sewing courses.
