Spring clean with our Textiles Drop-off Day

Published: 11 September 2023

Residents can drop off their ‘end of life’ textiles including clothing, bed linen, tablecloths and scrap fabric for free at the upcoming Textiles Drop-off Day!

All the textiles from the day will be recycled and turned into new clothing products through an innovative fibre to fabric recycling process.  

Cardinia Shire Council in partnership with Textile Recyclers Australia aims to reduce landfill by providing a convenient and sustainable option for disposing of old textiles and clothing unsuitable for donation. 

Whilst good quality textiles and clothing can be donated or gifted, taking ‘end of life’ textiles to a dedicated drop-off point helps ensure they can be turned into something new, instead of ending up in landfill. 

Event details 

  • Date: Saturday 7 October 
  • Time: 9am-1pm  
  • Location: IYU Recreation Reserve carpark (165 Henry Road, Pakenham) 
  • Registration is not essential, but preferred. 

Cardinia Shire Mayor, Councillor Tammy Radford encourages the community to get involved.  

“This is a great opportunity for some spring cleaning in a convenient and sustainable way,” Mayor Radford said. 

“It is exciting to know that clothing and items that otherwise would have ended up in landfill, are being repurposed into something new!” Mayor Radford said.
