This event is a free drop-off day for unwanted textiles.
THIS EVENT IS FOR CITY OF CASEY RESIDENTS ONLY, FOR HOUSEHOLD QUANTITIES. THIS EVENT IS NOT FOR BUSINESSES OR LARGE QUANTITIES.
We’re working with Give a Sheet® for the Planet and Upparel to recycle as many of the textiles as possible. We are also partnering with local charities to give your clothes with some life still left in them a new home.
Items accepted need to be CLEAN AND DRY (no mouldy or dirty items, stained is OK provided they are clean. Anything dirty or mouldy can be disposed of in your rubbish bin or via a booked hard waste collection).
Items need to be sorted into labelled bags or boxes neatly for CHARITY, LINEN RECYCLE, SHOE RECYCLE or CLOTHING RECYCLE (please no giant garbage bags as we need to be able to lift and move them easily). When deciding if your items should go to our charity partner or be recycled, ask yourself if you would be happy to give or receive the item as a gift. People in need deserve items that will make them feel special, if your items are past their best, they should go into the RECYCLE pile.
You will be sent printable labels closer to the date to stick on your parcels for drop off.
Please book to attend during an hour-long timeslot between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm.
