Having a post Christmas clear out? Starting your spring cleaning early? Broxtowe Borough Council’s badger mascot “Brock” is reminding residents that they can take advantage of the Council’s kerbside textile collection service to recycle their unwanted clothing.
The service allows residents to recycle their unwanted clothing, accessories such as belts and scarfs, paired shoes, towels, blankets, clean bedding and curtains by
placing them in carrier bags or white bin bags. These then need to be tied up and placed out for collection alongside their kerbside glass bag or bin.
The materials will then be collected by the glass team as they pick up the glass. An existing refuse freighter will be used, which has been adapted so that it can separately collect two materials.
Portfolio Holder for Environment, Councillor Greg Marshall said: “The textile recycling scheme is one way that residents can recycle their unwanted textiles easily and help to ensure that valuable resources are reused and don’t end up in expensive landfills.
“We understand that some people already recycle clothing through their local charity shop and we would ask that residents continue to do so supporting their chosen charities.”
