Fabrics & Textiles


Fabric is a textile or clothing.


Fabrics should be placed in a textile bank.


Once fabrics including clothes are placed in a textile bank they can be recycled or reused. Fabric and clothing if disposed of incorrectly can have a negative environmental impact.

Generally the carbon footprint of textile and clothing is quite high as the manufacturing process as global distribution impacts significantly on the environment.

It is important, where possible to reuse and recycle clothing and textiles and not dispose of them in the general waste bin.
