New textile recycling banks

You may have noticed the textile recycling banks in Fareham have changed! This is to reflect our new partnership with The Salvation Army. Fareham Borough Council is now working with The Salvation Army to manage textile recycling across the Borough.

The new banks can be used for all clothing, household textiles, shoes, bags, belts, handbags and accessories. The only household textiles we can’t use are quilts and pillows, so please don’t put them in. Shoes must be tied together in pairs, and everything should be tied in plastic bags before being put in the textile banks.

99% of clothing donated is reused or recycled. Your donations help fund local services, and help The Salvation Army help those in need. Every year in the UK The Salvation Army:

Councillor Simon Martin, Executive Member for Streetscene at Fareham Borough Council, said: “This new partnership is great news for the Borough and for The Salvation Army, and we look forward to working with them. I would encourage all residents to recycle all their textiles, to help to reduce our carbon footprint.”

In the next few weeks changes will be made to the Borough’s glass recycling banks, to allow glass and jars of all colours to be collected together. More details will be published soon.
