**Please note that due to contractor difficulties we’re temporarily not accepting textiles, i.e. bedding or curtains, at reuse and recycling centres (RRCs). We are working hard to resolve the textile problem and hope to go back to normal very soon. Please accept our apologies and let us know if you need guidance on these items in the meantime. Items of clothing can continue to be taken to your centre as usual.

Fabric in good condition could be sold online, given away to or donated to charity. Alternatively, it can be deposited in one of north London's on-street collection banks or taken to one of north London's reuse and recycling centres (RRC)(opens in a new window) where it will be sorted and recycled. To find a textiles bank near you, use the Recycle Now website (opens in a new window)

If you take unwanted textiles to an on-street collection bank, please be careful not to over-fill, or block the openings; consider separating items into smaller bags, or take larger items/collections to charity shop.
