What you can recycle

Clothes collectors

Please be aware that there are some companies operating in Stevenage who say they are collecting clothes and will give a percentage of their profits to charity.

All companies and charities who undertake house collections are required to register with us. If you have any suspicions about the company/charity, please contact us on 01438 242242 and ask to speak to Committee Services who will be able to tell you whether the company/charity has registered with us.

One way of always making sure your clothes go to a charity is to drop your clothes off at a charity shop. Alternatively, you can make use of the Recycling Centre on Caxton Way or use one of the recycling banks.
