SCHOOLS in Harlow have taken part in a competition to recycle old clothes and textiles.

Run by Recycle for Essex, the competition raised awareness of the importance of reusing and recycling textiles. 25 schools across the County took part, collecting nearly six tonnes of textiles for reuse and recycling, and raising over £2,000 for their schools.

It’s easy to recycle your textiles across Essex with many districts and boroughs offering kerbside collections, all recycling centres accepting textiles, along with the many textile banks located all around the county. All clean clothing and textiles can be recycled, even items that are ripped or have holes in.

The Recycle for Essex team is also running a campaign to encourage residents to reuse unwanted, wearable clothes. Unwanted clothes can be resold, rejuvenated, recycled or given to charity.
