What do I do with blankets?

Textiles recycling symbol

Used, unwanted blankets and bedding can be recycled in the textile bank at our Recycling and Waste Parks.

Some charity shops and homeless shelters accept clean reusable blankets and bedding.

Alternatively, some pet charities or animal shelters welcome donations of blankets, phone them first to check.

Co-Options Social Enterprise

Co-Options Social Enterprise (external website) are a Denbighshire based charity who collect textiles, shoes and resalable children's items from the kerbside once every two weeks. They sell re-useable items through their local charity shop in Rhyl, "Kit out the Kids and Family" (external website) to raise vital funds to help deliver other work in the community, providing jobs for vulnerable adults. Items that are too worn for re-sales are prepared for the recycling markets.

To find out if the kerbside service operates in your road, or your nearest collection point, please contact Co-Options on 01745 332300 or visit the Co-Options Social Enterprise website (external website).
