There are two ways to book a collection:

Your items will be collected by our contractor, Nathans Waste Savers.  Their staff will have ID cards to identify themselves as being a contractor of Renfrewshire Council.

If you call to book your textiles collection before 4pm, the items will be collected during the next working day (Monday to Friday).

Please make sure that all items are dry, shoes are tied into pairs and that a knot is tied into the top of the bag to keep the textiles dry.

You can also recycle textiles at your local Household Waste Recycling Centre.
