New Textile & Clothing Collection

Clothing & Textile Collection

Maldon District Council are working in partnership with Essex Textiles to provide a clothing & textile collection from your home starting in February 2020.

A roll of blue sacks and information leaflet will be delivered to all households before 31 January 2020 by the operator of this service - Essex Textiles

Present your blue textile recycling sack next to your pink sacks by 7am on your scheduled recycling collection day.  Please note that your textiles will be collected by Essex Textiles, but will not be collected at the same time as your pink sack recycling as this is collected by a different contractor (Suez)

To report a missed textile collection or to order more textile sacks contact Essex Textiles on 0800 787 9071 or email

If you have an assisted collection, have your waste collected by our smaller waste vehicle or have a large number of sacks to be collected please contact Essex Textiles to arrange a special collection.
