The City of Bristol has partnered with Simple Recycling so that residents can recycle clothing/textiles by placing them at the curb on their regular recycle day. Pink collection bags are obtained through Simple Recycling. The items are sold to thrift stores for resale. For more information, click here.
Upcycling is when you create a new use for an existing object, rather than throwing it away. Examples of upcycling are: using toilet paper rolls to organize cables and cords, reusing empty tissue boxes as plastic shopping bag dispensers, creating a piece of furniture (like a coffee table) with a wood pallet, etc.
