Anything made of material or fabrics is a textile and should not be placed in your general or recycling bin.
Clothing and textiles should be placed in a clothing bank.
We need to keep clothes and textiles out of landfill because it helps to reduces greenhouse gases.
A lot of clothing is made of organic material, meaning that it is derived from natural sources and is biodegradable. But landfills lack the oxygen needed for organic materials to break down so, when clothing does end up in a landfill, it decomposes through anaerobic digestion.
If you have NEW, unwanted or barely used items these can be donated to charity.
