clothing and textiles into sealed, pink or clear bags: 

  • Sealed bags must be placed 2 feet from carts or other objects
  • Clothing may be ripped or stained but it must be dry and odour-free
  • Clothing collection coincides with your regular collection day but it will be a different truck collecting your clothing bags​​
  • There is no limit however each bag should not exceed 20 kgs. ​​
