Blackpool Council offers a textile recycling collection alongside your fortnightly recycling bin collections. The income generated is shared between local charities and also helps support the running of the service.

  • Textile recycling is only available in bin recycling areas
  • Place your textile sack out with your recycling containers on your collection day
  • A different vehicle collects your textile sack from your recycling containers
  • The textile collection vehicle operates between 8.00am and 5.00pm 
  • We will only collect textiles presented in Blackpool Council textile sacks or in bags with a "Textiles for Blackpool Council" note attached

Please do not put any bric-a-brac, curtains or bedding inside your sack.
