Clothing & Textile Collection

We are working in partnership with Essex Textiles to provide a clothing & textile collection from your home.

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. They will not be collected at the same time as your pink sacks.

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 or have your waste collected by our smaller waste vehicle please contact Essex Textiles to arrange a special collection.
